Overview

Organizations face a variety of challenges as they seek to collaborate effectively across enterprises, geographies, and through N-Tiers of partners and suppliers. SDX™ Platform 8.0 is the foundation of Supply Dynamics’s multi-enterprise solutions. It was designed and built from the ground up specifically to allow discrete manufacturers and product companies to effectively monitor, influence and control outsourced production. The need to manage critical cost drivers no longer directly in their control, but which left unchecked, can have a direct effect on revenue and earnings, is a business imperative. Supported by enterprise-centric systems that were not designed to deal with the complexity of today’s highly distributed manufacturing environments, there was no solution, until now.

Introducing Supply Dynamics SDX™ 8.0 Multi-Enterprise Platform

The first software solution to provide discrete manufacturers and product companies with end-to-end visibility and control over the materials that flow into their outsourced parts, components & assemblies. SDX 8.0’s scalable multi-enterprise model integrates purchasing and supply related activity from disparate data sources and is designed to accommodate both structured and unstructured data.  This provides a powerful framework for:

  • Defining part and material categories and attributes dynamically.
  • Capturing purchasing activity and associating it with part and material records.
  • Correlating purchasing activity to parts using rules.
  • Analyzing and reporting purchasing activity by part and material attributes.
  • Summarizing and reporting purchasing activity vs. recommendations.
  • Generating an accurate picture of demand down to the raw material inputs where purchasing activity is not available.
