Supply Visualization?
For manufacturers, the supply chain is critical to being competitive. The supply chain must anticipate demand, adapt quickly to changing market conditions, and function as a lean, highly coordinated unit.
Vendor-managed inventory is a key component in competitive supply chains. And Supply Visualization, the new QAD service offering, is a key component in vendor-managed inventory.
Supply Visualization provides suppliers direct, real-time visibility into their manufacturing customers' inventories. It takes advantage of the power already built in to MFG/PRO and communicates inventory information to specified trading partners via a standard Internet browse.
Benefits of Supply Visualization include:
- Reduced inventory costs, storage, and management requirements
- Support for just-in-time delivery
- Quick, direct response to unexpected changes in demand and production
- Reduced inventory shortages and production crises
- An event-driven manufacturing environment
- Improved relationships between manufacturing customers and their suppliers based on suppliers better anticipating customers' needs
- Ultimately, increased customer service and satisfaction, released capital, and improved bottom line.
