Supply Chain Monitoring

Detecting supply risks at an early stage

Scarcity of resources, low warehouse inventories or market fluctuations – there are many reasons for disruptions in the supply chain. And one missed delivery can shut down critical manufacturing systems or even the entire production. To detect supply risks at an early stage, you need a central system that gives both you and your suppliers a common view of the actual supply situation – especially with regard to production-critical parts.

The Supply Chain Monitor presents a link between the customer and the supplier system. It has proven to be an ideal instrument for implementing a partnership approach in supply chain management.

This is precisely what SupplyOn offers: the Supply Chain Monitor continuously adjusts your requirements and available stock based on your supplier’s planned deliveries for the coming weeks and months. Immediately following a requirement notification, your supplier can indicate whether on-time delivery is possible. The resulting inventory situation is depicted in the Supply Chain Monitor in a graphical and table form. If values exceed or fall below defined threshold values or there are subsequent variations, alerts are automatically sent by e-mail to the process participants. The Supply Chain Monitor thereby enables dispatchers to detect bottleneck situations at an early stage through system-supported messages and work in an exception-based manner.

How you benefit from Supply Chain Monitoring with SupplyOn:

  • The electronic flow of information enables automatic identification of critical inventory situations. This means that you no longer have to determine variations my manually comparing requirements overviews and delivery schedules.
  • The automated early warning system affords you valuable time to promptly resolve imminent bottleneck situations and respond flexibly to fluctuations in demand.
  • You increase transparency in the supply chain and avoid shortage situations or expensive extra trips.
