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 eliminates the need for the OEM to consign material, purchase costly software applications, or deploy valuable resources to implement yet another expensive supply chain re-engineering program. 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.
Our suite of web-based tools and reports allow customers to instantly forecast and negotiate common materials and monitor the timely order and supply of materials across their extended supply chain. This enables an OEM and its supply partners to know that materials being produced, ordered and delivered are synchronized with actual finished part demand. It also allows the OEM to measure on-time delivery of raw materials to production sites and sub-tier suppliers, to standardize materials and to identify users for surplus, excess and obsolete materials. OASIS ensures that information is received when and where it is needed, which dramatically improves decisions by eliminating much of the speculation that characterizes the raw material supply chain today.
As supply chain professionals look to deliver bottom-line benefit in an increasingly competitive environment, Material Demand Aggregation offers a unique and effective solution to securing sustainable year over year cost savings.
