In the first phase of the project, the company-specific process requirements were recorded and the master data model and interfaces analyzed. A gap analysis was conducted to document the status quo and target status and to define which of the required functionalities were to be included in the proof of concept on the basis of which measurement criteria. They included the criteria for successful volume and transport planning.
At the same time, a conversion tool was programmed to generate EDIFACT requirement messages from data in CSV format and to report back the notification results converted from the EDIFACT format to the CSV target format.
The second phase of the project was dedicated to the rollout of suppliers. It was proven for the three defined proof of concept suppliers that SupplyOn carries out registration and training of suppliers very efficiently, with the result that suppliers are able in a very short space of time to receive messages and process them correctly.
The solution from SupplyOn and also the support in integration and training met with great acceptance at all three suppliers.
The manufacturer was able to prove that the notification portal implemented by SupplyOn cuts costs and significantly improves the quality of the notification data (the right quantity and correct weight and volume).
