For over 55 years, Mr. Lilly has been on the forefront of MRP, MRP II, and ERP innovation. In 1991, he launched VISUAL Manufacturing, the world’s first manufacturing software to offer an intuitive graphical user interface. But he didn’t stop there. With LillyWorks, he has assembled a world-class team, focused on one goal: giving manufacturers a simple way to solve the problems that get in the way of on-time performance and flow.
Material planning, purchasing and production planning functionality (collectively called Manufacturing Resource Planning or MRP II) were at the core of Enterprise Resource Planning when the acronym ERP was coined in the early 1990’s. At that time major software vendors, believing their product to be good enough in these areas, focused their development efforts in peripheral areas, even going so far as to add functionality for many non-manufacturing enterprises. Today ERP and manufacturing are no longer synonymous.
The Lilly family has been innovating software for manufacturing companies since 1960. At LillyWorks, we serve the needs of only manufacturing companies. We know that the needs of manufacturers have changed since last century and that MRP II functionality is no longer good enough.
