Setting the strategy
With the acquisition of PCMC by Barry-Wehmiller, management began re-evaluating its strategies and overall processes and systems to reduce time to market and operating costs. Growing demands of customers prompted PCMC to investigate ways to increase agility, speed, and yields regarding order changes. The company realized that its poorly defined, inefficient business processes needed rework, and its SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) system needed to be replaced to match Barry-Wehmiller's standard approach. Given SAP's complexities, PCMC also knew it lacked the IT support and infrastructure needed to maintain existing investments. Matt Gidley, director of IT at PCMC, concludes, "With SAP, we would've had to make significant additional investments in hardware, software, and intellectual skills."
