1.3.4. data analysis

2. Type of IOS

2.1. Supply chain management (SCM) systems

2.1.1. producing the right product in the right quantity at the right time in the right location to the right customer at the right price.

2.2. Computer-integrated manufacturing systems (CIMS)

2.2.1. represent the union of hardware, software, and communications to automate and control production activities robot programmable machine designed to handle materials or tools in the performance of a variety of tasks CAD/CAE enables engineers to design, analyze, test, simulate, and “manufacture” products before they physically exist. CAM involves computer control of the manufacturing process. Flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) consist of two or more computer-controlled machines linked by automated handling devices Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems integrate all aspects of a business unified information system and provide more timely analysis and reporting of sales Two prominent vendors : SAP and Oracle. Customer relationship management (CRM) business strategy designed to learn more about customers’ wants and needs behaviors in order to build customer relationships and loyalty and ultimately enhance revenues and profits helps firms gain and maintain a competitive advantage by Revenue management system (RMS) dynamic methods to forecast demand allocate perishable assets cross Rate classes, decide when to overbook and by how much, determine what price to Charge different customer (price) classes Modern RMS software simultaneously makes changes in these decisions in a real-time operating system.
