Infor SyteLine/CSI for High-Tech & Electronics Manufacturers

Manufacturers rely on SyteLine to navigate supply chain challenges, manage customer-owned inventory, and enable growth

High-tech and electronics manufacturers face greater component constraints as the demand for increasingly intelligent devices is on the rise. To address these constraints, more product extensions driven by software, and a volatile supply chain, your manufacturing operations need more flexibility in your operational processes. Additionally, the high degree of complex manufacturing with numerous contracted components requires powerful forecasting tools with the ability to build scenarios and the combination of planning with strong vendor management capabilities.

Infor SyteLine—also known as CloudSuite Industrial (CSI)—enables high-tech and electronics manufacturers to generate better flexibility and deeper insights by addressing these complex requirements with an integrated, highly standardized, and pre-configured set of pliable functionalities which can be deployed very quickly onsite or in the cloud.

Comprehensive Functionality

Learn how SyteLine helps you achieve competitive differentiation with the following:

Manage Customer-Owned Inventory

  • SyteLine advanced planning and scheduling (APS) can be customized to respect customer-owned inventory and allocate it only to that customer so you don’t need to have a unique part number for each customer’s part (especially when parts for multiple customers are the same)
  • You can reserve stock for specific products of the same customer
  • You can reserve any part in your inventory for a specific order until the order is released
  • Know when to re-order every part
  • Prevent having excess inventory or not enough for production
  • This feature is normally only available in tier one ERP systems like SAP, which typically require at least a million-dollar investment to start
