Twin Disc Achieves Global Manufacturing Excellence with JD Edwards

Twin Disc, a manufacturer of marine and industrial products, implements JD Edwards ERP software to grow profits

The Client

In 1918, Twin Disc originated a power transmission technology that changed the way the world works. For nine decades, the global manufacturing company has been developing, engineering, manufacturing and distributing power transmission products that make things work. Today Twin Disc primarily produces marine and industrial products. With a history of innovation, Twin Disc took a proactive approach to solving challenges with Twin Disc’s internal business systems. When the company’s mission of continued profitable growth was impeded by internal barriers to critical information, the global manufacturing business realized it needed an integrated IT system to reach its strategic goals and ensure future growth.

The Challenge

Twin Disc was facing the following business challenges:

  • Manual, inconsistent, people-intensive business processes and limited use of automation to improve efficiency
  • Siloed systems and fragmented, inconsistent, inaccessible data
  • Limited holistic scheduling and forecasting
  • Twin Disc executive management was unable to access to relevant information to make timely business decisions
  • The system’s inability to handle foreign currencies hindered local and global manufacturing growth
  • Limited knowledge of customers and markets was limiting the ability to forecast sales and service capabilities
