NetSuite, Inc. has been well known for its cloud-based financial accounting and ERP software solutions for a number of years, especially for its support of light manufacturing with assembly-to-stock or order of single-level bills of materials (AKA kit). In 2010, NetSuite began to beef up its manufacturing software offerings. Today, the company’s NetSuite Manufacturing Edition, which is a cloud-based ERP/financial suite for manufacturers, supports light manufacturing as well as more complex operations.
Netsuite Manufacturing: Three Editions
To cover a wide range of manufacturing environments, NetSuite currently offers three variations of its NetSuite Manufacturing Edition: Light, Standard and Advanced manufacturing. NetSuite Manufacturing Edition can handle multi-level bills of materials and demand planning for more repetitive type operations. This ERP software solution can also support recipe-based process manufacturers that produce in batches and discrete manufacturing. NetSuite Manufacturing Edition is not really suitable for engineer-to-order or configure to order manufacturing unless it is a very small part of the overall operation. NetSuite is an award-winning company that was founded in 1998, is headquartered in San Mateo, CA and employs more than 1,000 people. The company has nine offices located throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.
