Take a look at Epicor.  I have a few friends that work at companies that use this, they seem to like it. It's designed for manufacturing specifically.

It will really depend on the complexity, industry and type of manufacturing you are doing and the specific needs to have.  If this is a simple discrete type manufacturing process any of those should be ok to use.  If it is process based (chemicals etc.) or lot based (pharma, semiconductor etc.)

If you are looking for a fully integrated solution with procurement, inventory management, sales, planning etc. then an ERP is the way to go.  If you are looking for ways to execute the shop floor you may want to look in to MES (manufacturing execution systems) as well.

If you could provide a bit more detail for what you need I could probably point you in the right direction.

I've used infor prodcuts in the past.  I'd have to say that I am underwhelmed by their long term support of products.  They seem to acquire, sell, enhance, and then shelve. When you manage some 30 ERP systems, no one product will ever be great.  That's my take on infor.
