• NetSuite Announces Next-Generation Manufacturing Solution
  • Transforming Manufacturing
  • NetSuite + Autodesk


Manufacturers are increasingly turning to cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications to run product development, production, supply chain, order management, financials and other core business applications without the time and cost burden of on-premise software and servers.

With the integration of cloud-based Autodesk PLM 360 and NetSuite ERP, which features a range of industry-specific functionality, product-centric companies such as manufacturers, wholesaler and distributors, and retailers are uniquely positioned to meet critical challenges.

Key Benefits

  • Speed the cycle from concept to design to delivery, and finally recycle.

    Product concept, design and engineering data in Autodesk PLM 360, once released, feeds into NetSuite manufacturing to assemble bills of materials (BOMs), source components, assess capacity and more, with role-based authorization across both PLM and ERP systems. Autodesk's leadership in design, engineering, visualization and simulation software provides an incredible advantage for customers.

  • Bridge the gap between PLM and ERP.

    Though leading manufacturers depend on both PLM and ERP solutions, integration between the two has traditionally been problematic, depriving companies of the opportunities to improve performance and profitability. Autodesk and NetSuite bridge the gap between PLM and ERP with a seamlessly integrated bi-directional solution.

  • Sharpen costing and pricing.

    On-demand visibility into component and production data, as well as forecasting and demand planning, shared across PLM and ERP systems enables manufacturers to optimize costing and pricing to maximize profitability.

  • Enable intelligent change management.

    Seamless integration between Autodesk PLM 360 and NetSuite ERP gives designers, engineers, and multi-tier partners as well other stakeholders a massively scalable platform to ensure that changes are properly documented, propagated and managed in both PLM and downstream manufacturing.

  • Drive post-production efficiency.

    NetSuite's acclaimed inventory, order management and fulfillment capabilities help manufacturers improve customer satisfaction, while NetSuite SuiteCommerce supports sales at physical locations (with integrated Point-of-Sale) and through Ecommerce, enabling easy creation of multiple branded or geo-specific websites and expansion into direct-to-consumer Ecommerce.

  • Enable a virtuous circle of innovation.

    Feedback from customers and partners captured in NetSuite CRM, service and PSA modules gives designers and engineers essential insights to understand customer acceptance of a product, assess criticisms and issues, and to adapt accordingly. The integrated solution will also support bi-directional quality corrective action with suppliers.
