E&A has experience delivering information technology solutions for manufacturers in the aerospace and defense industry. Combining industry expertise with advanced ERP solutions from Infor, E&A will help your company increase efficiency, productivity and profitability.
E&A can configure and implement an Infor VISUAL solution to help you gain greater control over your most critical processes, including:
Manufacturers in the aerospace industry require specific functional capabilities in order to manage a complex array of projects. They need to perform stringent cost accounting and maintain consistency and accountability throughout their company. To manage program and contract demands, aerospace companies need end-to-end integration that provides project status visibility each step of the way.
As a robust, integrated, affordable system for managing program and contract demands, Infor VISUAL combines lean manufacturing, powerful tracking and reporting, detailed audit trails, and production and inventory control capabilities with tools for contract administration and billing, Work Breakdown Structure, and project control and execution. Because the Infor VISUAL modules are fully integrated from one end of the supply chain to the other, your organization can save critical project time by avoiding redundant data entry and exchanging data between multiple stand alone systems.
Infor VISUAL's comprehensive Project Management module allows you to maintain contracts and associated Contract Line Item Numbers (CLINs) to match existing aerospace best business practices. You can also set up Terms and Conditions and establish multi-type indirect and direct rate codes for project accounting. This ERP software solution makes it easy to accurately report earned values and assess project risk. Using powerful tracking and reporting features, including DD250 reporting, you can manage material and inventory, monitor cash flow, compute overhead, and accumulate labor, all by project or contract.
Infor VISUAL's Project Management module enables your company to effectively control the complete lifecycle of your projects and contracts, enabling you to deliver products on-time, on-budget, and to customer specification. The Project Management module is also integrated with Microsoft® Project, a commonly used productivity tool in the aerospace industry for the communication of project status to internal and external project team members. Whether you perform contract or commercial work, Infor VISUAL offers the most effective capabilities in the industry to handle project based and engineer-to-order requirements.
Infor VISUAL offers a robust Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) capability that allows you to build the hierarchical definition of your contract reporting elements and capture costs from engineering, procurement, production, inventory, and other activities against the WBS elements in real-time. Flexible reporting not only complies with contractual requirements, it also puts you in control of materials, labor, and other cost elements daily, by billing period, and throughout the life of a contract.
