Paperless goods receipt: the automatic link between goods receipt and quality processes

Matching themes: ASN, goods receipt

Automated, digital, paperless and efficient: The SupplyOn solution Paperless Goods Receipt simplifies goods receipt and seamlessly connects with your quality processes
Automated, digital, paperless and efficient: The SupplyOn solution Paperless Goods Receipt expedites goods receipt, especially for safety-critical materials, and seamlessly connects with your quality processes

Traceability, transport optimization, goods receipt and inventory automation are top priorities for most logistics managers. Particularly in sectors where safety is crucial, such as aerospace, the rail industry or plant engineering, high legal requirements apply to the testing and documentation of the materials used. For this purpose, suppliers must hand over various documents, test protocols or certificates along with the material delivery. This documentation is usually either enclosed with the delivered parts in hard copy or sent to the buyer via e-mail.

Challenge: scattered and missing information

It is precisely these differing communication channels that pose major challenges for goods receipt. Read more

Always looking back at the last three months: two years of SAFe and one year of Program Increment remotely.

Since 2019, we have been reviewing the progress achieved in our solutions every three months in large rounds of so-called Program Increments (PI) – and for the past year, we have been following the innovations in virtual PI Plannings remotely. Nevertheless, it is always exciting to see what new functions and features have been developed.

What have the development teams already successfully implemented this year? Read more

The ASN is getting smart: Save 60 percent time when creating shipping documents

Matching themes: artificial intelligence, ASN

AI-enhanced packaging proposals boost ASN quality, drastically reduce ASN creation time, and increase efficiencies on both sides of the supply chain
AI-enhanced packaging proposals boost ASN quality, drastically reduce ASN creation time, and increase efficiencies on both sides of the supply chain

Imagine an intelligent solution for creating shipping documents that learns in the course of a few weeks which packaging rules are effective for which customer and which parts. It then applies them automatically when creating the ASN (Advance Shipping Notification) and thus relieves you of around half of your work. Even complex ASNs, whose creation often takes more than a quarter of an hour, can be created in less than 5 minutes in the future. Read more

A close collaboration among carriers and manufacturers using the Transport Volume Forecast helps to smooth out disruptions and secure supply

For more than a year now, logistics and supply chain managers around the world have been struggling with unprecedented challenges. The impact from the first coronavirus-induced shutdowns, when supply chains and transportation networks around the world collapsed, continues to ripple through the industry. High volatility in demand, natural disasters and vessel incidents such as the recent one blocking the Suez Canal have further aggravated the situation.

Problem is, transportation capacity is extremely scarce and in hot demand. Numerous aircraft are still grounded. Container shortages continue to persist for quite a while. All of this is not only hampering sea and air cargo, but also road transports.

As a result, freight rates skyrocketed, as did uncertainty for manufacturers that rely on smoothly functioning logistics chains. In many cases, it’s unclear or at least hardly possible to plan when exactly their materials are going to be transported. So, the ever more pressing question is: How can companies best secure their shipments and thus ensure the flow of supplies to their plants and customers? Read more
