Improved supply chain execution: Achieved favorable supplier relationships with the optimal usage of the “Supplier exchange portal” as it allowed access to supplier networks for effective communications and efficient order process for better prices with greater visibility. Furthermore, it reduced inventory costs and improved flexibility to manage part obsolescence with an integrated tracking of the serial numbers for parts.
Reduced operational complexity: Effective supply chain features improved planning, scheduling, maintained visibility & control, and provided the required alignment between production and demand.
The solution has helped to simplify engineering and purchasing processes, especially engineering changes. The quality team facilitated the quality and compliance process by monitoring essential metrics and ensuring precision and NCRs.
Single Source of Truth which ensured greater visibility on the data source and engineering process paved way to unlock innovation. The tightly integrated PLM-supported engineering design is now seamlessly integrated with the CloudSuite application. Complex BOMs and unique BOM structures for design, planning, and manufacturing are easily maintained and generated automatically from the production module.
Managed costs by enforcing standards and utilizing industry-specific best practices to support operational efficiency and effectiveness. The data-driven platform makes it possible to understand better how changes impact cost, inventory, production schedules, cycle times, and quality across disciplines, business partners, and the product lifecycle through analytics and alerts.
Significantly, the solution has reduced the cost of quality through proper planning, tracking, and disposal of non-conforming material without the need for external systems or spreadsheets.
