As I am responsible for external communication at SupplyOn, I really don’t have a specific thematic focus and therefore blog about a variety of subjects such as: impressions gained at trade shows and conferences, recent studies, exciting use cases, news from our target industries – and any other interesting information I may come across for our SupplyOn blog readers.

SBB relies on RailSupply to significantly improve efficiency in purchasing and procurement logistics.

The Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), with around 34,000 employees, a transport network of over 3,000 kilometers and almost a half billion passengers per year, is the national railway company of Switzerland, consisting of the four divisions Passenger Transportation, Cargo, Infrastructure and Real Estate. In 2016, the division Passenger Transportation took the initiative to transition the ordering process, until then carried out with high manual effort by email and fax, to a continuous digital process using the RailSupply solution from SupplyOn. The goal of this changeover was to significantly streamline the SBB’s purchasing and procurement logistics. Read more

TEMA-Fischer GmbH solved this problem many years ago with ZF Friedrichshafen AG in an exemplary way and now handles the most important processes via SupplyOn. This is now also the case with their order processes for Siemens. Every additional customer who takes the same approach to collaboration will increase the benefits for the machining specialist.

“Get IoTized” – this was not the official motto of the conference held by the Competence Center Aerospace (CCA) in Kassel, Germany, on February 28, 2017, but it appeared to be the leitmotif of all the presentations at the event. This began as early as the welcome by German Economics Minister Brigitte Zypries, who is, among other things, a strong advocate for the expansion of broadband networks particularly in industrial parks in rural areas of the country to create a technical foundation there for Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things.

Digitalization of the aerospace supply chain – the dream and the reality

Matching themes: Aerospace, AirSupply, Digital Supply Chain, Supply Chain

Research on the digitalization of the aerospace supply chain
The study on the digitalization of the aerospace supply chain highlights a need for action

70 percent of respondents in a new study on the digitalization of the aerospace supply chain say they are convinced that digitalization can be advanced only if all parties use the same system. But the reality proves to be different. More than 80 percent of the respondents confirm having to use multiple portals to communicate with customers – and this, even though approximately 90 percent of the respondents were convinced that the multitude of different portals undermined the positive effects of digitalization.

The continued digitalization of the supply chain across all levels – as the study also clearly found – is viewed as being one of the most important measures for mastering the future challenges in the aerospace industry. Read more

Purchasing processes via SupplyOn Sourcing: As simple as possible, as complex as needed

Matching themes: procurement

Say good-bye to overly complicated tools: With SupplyOn Sourcing, purchasing is becoming easier
Say good-bye to overly complicated tools: With SupplyOn Sourcing, purchasing is becoming easier

How effective is a sourcing tool that, while it basically covers all conceivable purchasing processes, is so complicated that not all buyers use it, since it requires too much training or because even trained buyers soon forget how to operate it?

The company-wide adoption of a sourcing tool is the only effective way to standardize purchasing processes, adhere to purchasing compliance guidelines and improve the overall efficiency of a purchasing organization. Therefore, SupplyOn’s motto is: as simple as possible, as complex as needed.

This principle is clearly demonstrated by a global plant construction company which has found a tool that covers precisely the required functions in the SupplyOn solution and is reaping the rewards as it is rolled out globally. Read more
