If you are looking to mix and match modules however you want, you may want to consider an open source ERP solution. Business-Software.com's blog post sheds light on this topic if you want to explore more, but I can give you one software solution right here.
Try OpenERP. The solution allows you to pick and choose from a jaw-dropping library of 3,000 community modules. And that is only in addition to its 200 standard modules. All of which should integrate with each other smoothly. I'd give it a try if you are on a budget and looking for a solution unique to your business.
I would suggest that you look at Axiom EPM since it is a solution that is extremely flexible and is very cost effective for many organizations. We choose this solution as a replacement for another enterprise module in our accounting department and then extended that to broader uses. It is MS SQL Server based where the business department end users have a greater control over the system in contrast to being dependent upon data center personnel for everything. Axiom EPM has deep experience in the health care, education, and financial services industries however they also have successful implementations in manufacturing. If you have users that can write basic SQL queries, then creating dashboards, ad hoc reports or leverage standardized fillable PDF forms that save back to the Axiom database is something that they can do. The combination of total cost of ownership, ease of administration for your data center staff and the flexibility it offers your business users is worth an internet check and follow-up.
I'm going to suggest SAP Business ByDesign. It can do all of what you said, runs in the cloud for a monthly fee. Not intended for smaller companies, more for mid-sized. You can see demos at http://appliedprogress.com/
Infor SyteLine ERP can address all of the needs with "out of the box" functionality to speed ROI. You also have the option of native integration with Salesforce.com if you need a robust CRM. Another key feature that could be of interest is SyteLine's Configurator for complex product configurations and automated ordering portals.
