Consumer Products Manufacturing

In today’s culture where instant gratification drives what consumers buy, it's vital for manufacturers to stay ahead of the constant changes. Product development and replenishment life-cycles can shrink, supply chains feel the impact of every buying pattern shift, and manufacturers face tightening margins. In order to gain share and increase profit, consumer products companies must anticipate and meet customer demand on the shelf, while managing their margins and complying with ever-evolving safety and environmental regulations.

Built on a Strong Foundation

QAD actively works with customers in a number of development and industry groups. Learning from these initiatives.

QAD incorporates the best processes and features to help consumer product manufacturers readily adapt to changes in their consumer demand, production, delivery, financial and supply chain needs in today’s global marketplace.

Focus on Meeting Customer Demand on the Shelf

Consumer product manufacturers can never have too much information about consumer behavior. Today, manufacturers rely on point of sale data and store level data to improve planning and fulfillment.

QAD Demand Planning uses mathematical models based on consumer data to build and manage accurate forecasts, uncovering seasonality and other consumer buying patterns. QAD Business Intelligence helps manufacturers quickly evaluate business situations to make informed decisions, such as production and distribution decisions. QAD Warehouse Management offers a complete range of task automation, picking, quality control, replenishment and inventory analysis across multiple warehouses. Consumer product companies use QAD Enterprise Applications to support frequent deliveries that reduce stock-outs at the shelf.

Focus on Successful Promotions

Consumer product manufacturers expend enormous amounts of money on trade spending and promotions, using a variety of techniques such as coupons, bundling and discounting programs. But what works?

QAD’s Trade Activity Management offers manufacturers full visibility into promotional processes and metrics, and includes a set of automated promotion processes to reduce the likelihood of errors. Integrated with QAD Demand Planning and QAD Business Intelligence, it matches forecasts to results, and offers a wide range of reports and what if analyses to model future promotions.

Focus on

Product Innovation

Delivering new products quickly to the marketplace is critical to the success of consumer product companies.

Structuring manufacturing operations and processes to adapt to a variable product mix helps manufacturers roll out new products quickly and more cost effectively.

QAD Lean Manufacturing supports consumer products companies that adopt lean quality principles including Kanban, takt time calculations and visual control and safety methods.

Focus on

Product Innovation

In an environment where consumers are more selective about where and how to spend their money and private label suppliers undercut the pricing of branded suppliers, pressures to drive margins in the consumer products industry is higher than ever.

Increasing promotion frequency, providing customer self-service and putting product configuration directly in the hands of consumers all contribute to margin improvement.

QAD Customer Self Service (CSS) supplies a sophisticated Web storefront tool for self-service sales transactions and inquiries. This enables manufacturers to take orders QAD CSS integrates with QAD Configurator to even allow customers to configure products

Focus on

Safety and Compliance

When a single blog post or a flurry of tweets can highlight quality issues to the world in a split second, consumer product manufacturers must adhere to standards and industry certification standards such as ISO. Managing recalls effectively not only preserves brand reputation it protects profitability too. Achieving product safety and compliance reaches across the supply chain, which must adhere to the same standards, practices and regulations.

QAD QMS (Quality Management System) provides the functionality to meet ongoing quality system requirements, while sharing quality data across all manufacturing and supply chain processes. It enables consumer product companies to configure business processes to ensure they meet internationally recognized compliance requirements.

QAD Lot Trace Workbench helps companies manage product recalls, and the identification and location of all products through every manufacturing and distribution stage. Serialization and Lot Management enable companies to manage high volume serialization tracking and tracing and mass serialization, while at the same time enabling the management and control of logistics requirements.
