Premium AEROTEC introduces SupplyOn AirSupply for end-to-end SCM processes from OEM to tier 2
Premium AEROTEC GmbH, leading manufacturer of aircraft structures and body parts, has opted for the widespread implementation of AirSupply, SupplyOn’s SCM industry solution. The company’s aim is to optimize both the collaboration with customers as well as the processes with its suppliers. A joint central system used from OEM to tier 2 will contribute to end-to-end mapping of order and supply processes as well as the early detection of potential bottlenecks. AirSupply supports the highly collaborative SCM processes of the aerospace industry where delivery dates and quantities are defined in close agreement with business partners.
“We were convinced by AirSupply’s core idea: A joint solution for the entire aerospace industry with standardized interfaces and processes tailored for the sector,” says Mattias Schmidt, project manager at Premium AEROTEC GmbH in Augsburg. “A great advantage for us was that almost 90 percent of our suppliers were already using the solution. So we could benefit from a fast implementation within just a few months.”
Premium AEROTEC implemented AirSupply in the first quarter of 2013 at the Bremen, Varel and Nordenham sites, and integrated almost 100 suppliers that provide production material to Premium AEROTEC. In future the plant in Augsburg as well as further 150 suppliers are to be connected.
