5 Features to Look for in Rubber &
Plastic Manufacturing ERP
When searching for an ERP system to
implement, rubber and plastic manufacturers
sometimes fail to look for specific functionality
related to the industry.
Failure to do this often lead to missing the
mark, selecting the wrong system, and
laying the framework for ERP
Choosing a generic ERP system instead of one
designed to fit the needs of the rubber and plastic
industry, you may face expensive customizations and
complicated ongoing maintenance.
This also lengthens implementation
To avoid choosing the wrong system
and all the trouble that comes along
with it, look for the following 5 ERP
features/modules which are crucial to
your rubber and plastic manufacturing
1. Lot Traceability
• Lot traceability functionality gives you the power
to track which supplier lots of product were used
in each end product, and who received those
• This is especially important in the event of a
product recall, as you will have all the information
you need to quickly stop the damage and control
2. Production Scheduling
Production scheduling is crucial to reduce
cost and maximize efficiency. With
production scheduling capabilities you will
be able to track all production planning
processes and work the way you need to
for improved productivity and accuracy.
3. Supply Chain Management Features
• Supply chain management gives you complete control
and insight to manage and track raw materials, work-
in-process inventory, and end products from the point
of origin to final consumption.
• The right system promotes tight collaboration
throughout the supply chain

company with a unified solution for aiding the
