Supply Dynamics is a professional services company based in Loveland, Ohio specializing in “Supply CHANGE Management.” Supply Dynamics enables Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and their sub-tier suppliers to achieve step-change performance by providing visibility and control over the materials that go into the finished parts manufactured by, or supplied to, an OEM. These materials include, but are not limited to:
|Sheet Metal||Fasteners||Bar Products||Plastics & Composites|
|Valves||Bosses||Braze Products||Electronic Components|
|Weld Wires||Tubes/Pipes||Powders||Small Fabricated Parts|
|Plate||Piping||Bearings||Structurals: I-Beam, Channel, Angle|
Material Demand Aggregation is a process by which every material input element that contributes to the cost of your finished parts is identified, analyzed, tracked and leveraged, especially the Bills of Material that go into the finished-parts made by your sub-tier suppliers.
Material Demand Aggregation drives efficiency and cost reduction by synchronizing information flows, utilizing state-of–the-art hosted IT solutions, and proprietary business processes developed by Supply Dynamics. Provided in a hosted “software as a service” model, the Supply Dynamics multi-enterprise platform,OASIS, exchanges critical to quality data with virtually any number of legacy MRP/ERP systems, providing customers with a single, unified view of how finished part materials are impacting their business.
Because many OEMs have outsourced the manufacture of a significant portion of the parts that go into their products, many of them no longer know exactly what materials go into them. The only documentation that some OEMs have are those contained in CAD or other design engineering systems, and these are often woefully incomplete. Ultimately, a part or assembly's blueprint is the surest, most reliable reference source when it comes to determining part characteristics and material-input requirements.
Part Attribute Characterization is a software-driven service offered by Supply Dynamics where customers provide us with their digital blueprints or other engineering data and we deploy an army of experienced engineers who then document significant attributes associated with those parts. Supply Dynamics then delivers a comprehensive tabulation of attributes by part number that can be leveraged to identify part commonalities for engineering, strategic sourcing, procurement, manufacturing, quality and materials management.
