Supply Dynamics Provides Crucial Data Connectivity & Raw Material Insights for Multi-National Automobile Manufacturer
Transparency for all: Supply Dynamics hired to design a customized, clear-cut solution for raw material collaboration
Loveland, Ohio: In January, Supply Dynamics completed a 4-day workshop with one of the world’s largest multi-national automobile manufacturers. Drawing on more than 57 years of experience with the design, deployment, and maintenance of directed buy, consignment and buy/resell programs, Supply Dynamics developed customized workflows and narratives to assist the Customer in designing a world-class solution for managing raw materials across the global supply chain. Envisioned is a SaaS solution that will integrate the SDX multi-enterprise platform with the Customer’s existing SAP ERP solution and that will replace several other, old and ineffective legacy backend systems. During the workshop, the Supply Dynamics team interviewed more than 36 stakeholders, spanning Procurement, Information Systems, Engineering, and other relevant functional areas.
As the first phase of a much larger supply chain transformation initiative, Supply Dynamics facilitated detailed discussion on key functionality and reporting requirements, including understanding existing data inputs and required outputs, to gain a deeper understanding of desired system integration points. “We have mapped what will be a world-class solution,” says Kaitlyn Maybee, Customer Success Manager for Supply Dynamics. "It marries new and existing workflows with modern strategies and state-of-the-art technology to provide clear, concise information to all stakeholders—internal engineering, procurement leaders, outside contract manufacturers, and various raw material service centers. Generally, SDX does not require this level of integration but given the unique requirements of the automotive industry, everyone needs real-time access to actionable information all of the time. The amount of non-value-added work eliminated by SDX will be a godsend for this Customer.”
