How To Use Low Code No Code Technology For A Manufacturing Company

By Gian Adato

Building apps for manufacturing companies? It’s possible! 

Enter low-code no-code technology. It has allowed non-technical users to build software applications and automate workflows which are especially useful if you’re a startup business or an enterprise who are looking to streamline operations and innovate your business. The manufacturing sector is one of the industries that are being impacted by using LCNC technology.

But how does low code no code technology revolutionize manufacturing enterprises? 

Nymbl’s CEO and Co-founder Martyn Mason recently made a quick review and the manufacturing sector stood out for its adoption of Low Code / No Code technologies. 

“My experience in manufacturing began with cleansing, validating, and migrating legacy data into ERP systems (SAP usually). Everything from the intricate bill of materials for fighter jets to the complex BOMs of plastics chemicals.”, adds Martyn. Low code no code platforms accelerate the development lifecycle, enabling rapid prototyping, testing, and deployment without the need for extensive coding knowledge. For the manufacturing sector, this translates into quicker adaptation to changing market demands and a more responsive approach to operational challenges.

What are some of the uses of low code no code technology for the manufacturing sector?

Martyn ran down common uses of low code no code technology for this sector:

🔍 Inspection Applications: Routine inspections are the backbone of quality control in manufacturing. The process of capturing photos, recording findings, and initiating action workflows, though common, varies significantly across industries. Low-code platforms shine here, offering versatility and efficiency.

📦 Inventory Visibility: Achieving precise inventory counts, crucial for meeting demand, remains elusive even with top-tier ERP systems. The challenge often lies in integrating demand-side data from various sources. Low-code platforms bridge this gap, ensuring inventory accuracy by harmonizing disparate data streams.

🏗 Quote Builders: The need for custom quotations in manufacturing, especially for made-to-order products, cannot be overstated. Traditional quoting processes are time-consuming and prone to inaccuracies. Low-code applications streamline this, enhancing speed, accuracy, and ultimately, sales conversion rates. Imagine addressing a scenario where a company faced a 2,000% pricing variance on identical quotes—low-code solutions turn chaos into consistency.

Why are manufacturing companies a great fit for Low Code?

⚙ Culture of Process Improvement: The ethos of continuous refinement extends beyond the assembly line and applies to data management and digital solutions. Applications create structure and data integrity, fostering better decision-making and data availability.

💲 Easily Measurable ROI: If investing Y can yield X more widgets per day, the ROI becomes clear and attainable. Manufacturers often have a good grasp of volume and quantity, making it easier to predict workforce output, lead time reduction, or inventory levels. We once observed a business line increase its order volume from 100 to over 1,000 orders a month within a year.

🎯 Quality Control: Many apps we build support quality control standards, including inspections, material requirements, supplier reviews, disposal of bad batches, hazardous waste, and RMAs. Maintaining quality levels and disposing of subpar products are common practices in manufacturing. Recognizing these processes as essential, our focus shifts from ‘Should we build this app?’ to ‘How can we best solve these problems?’


The adoption of Low Code/No Code technologies is reshaping the manufacturing sector, empowering organizations to become more agile, efficient, and innovation-focused. LCNC is causing a massive paradigm shift and is developing and deploying software solutions, bringing unprecedented agility and innovation to the industry. As the industry continues to embrace digital transformation, these platforms will play a crucial role in driving sustainable growth and ensuring manufacturers stay ahead in an increasingly competitive global market. The time is ripe for manufacturers to explore the vast potential of LCNC technologies and embark on a journey towards a more technologically advanced and responsive future.
