Both small and large project based manufacturers are realizing the benefits of applying digital tools and methodologies to automate processes that are often manual. In addition to the efficiencies automation can bring, digitizing your manufacturing work flows provides greater visibility into project costs, real-time supply chain status, and greater control over materiel planning and scheduling.

Deltek’s Costpoint Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software is the Industry-Leading accounting solution for Government Contractors, but did you know that it also has both built-in and add-on manufacturing modules that can facilitate digital manufacturing? Costpoint’s manufacturing modules along with additional functionality provided by Partner companies enable end-to-end manufacturing project management that also checks the box on Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) compliance and incorporates the Department of Defense (DoD) Cybersecurity Capability Maturity Model (CMMC) framework.
