CINCINNATI, OH, U.S.A. (May 16, 2013) – Supply Dynamics is pleased to announce the release of OASIS 8.1, the Online Aggregation Strategic Information System. This web-enabled, hosted IT application is a dynamic raw materials forecasting and fulfillment solution which now offers improved charting and data visualization capabilities. This system allows Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), and their Contract Manufacturers, to assess and analyze their raw materials supply chain more efficiently.
This improved functionality enables users to monitor internal operations as well as their machine shops and fabricators – and to customize data results individually or collectively. OASIS 8.1 allows data analysis to be conducted across their supply base and to filter results based on material forms, alloys, grades, specifications, dimension and other significant part attributes. This empowers users to focus on specific information for improved decision making.
“We continue to introduce new functionality to the OASIS software, ensuring it is flexible to the growing needs of our customers. As many of our employees have come from backgrounds in manufacturing or software, we understand how powerful enterprise software can be when it enables creative and innovative uses,” says Scott Jones, Director of Operations.
The ability to gather accurate information quickly, and synthesize it into a production strategy which provides cost savings and operational efficiency is invaluable to Supply Dynamics’ customers. To focus on the accuracy and speed of data analytics, Supply Dynamics maximized the value of OASIS 8.1 by adding high quality graphics to the data analysis function. Graphics provide a visual model to aide in the speed of interpretation and understanding of the collected data. OASIS 8.1 will give Supply Dynamics’ customers the specific information they require to negotiate favorable pricing, terms, and service from metal distributors and mills.
“Over Supply Dynamics’ 11 years in business, we have established ourselves as a leader in Material Demand Aggregation. However, in order to provide the most advanced tools in supporting an aggregation program, we felt that the incorporation of improved charting capabilities was a natural step for OASIS,” says Trevor Stansbury, President of Supply Dynamics.

About Supply Dynamics: Supply Dynamics is the leading provider of material consolidation solutions known as “Material Demand Aggregation.” Located in Cincinnati Ohio, Supply Dynamics utilizes proprietary processes and IT solutions to provide OEM customers with real-time visibility and control over the materials that go into their finished parts – especially the materials that go into the parts made by their Tier 1 and Tier 2 outside part fabricators. Provided in a hosted “software as a service” model, the Supply Dynamics multi-enterprise platform 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. Supply Dynamics’ 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 outside part fabricators, to standardize materials and to identify users for surplus, excess and obsolete materials. Material Demand Aggregation is applicable to numerous industries providing a means for OEMs to coordinate the actions of each link in the supply chain to dramatically improve efficiency and predictability of supply. Supply Dynamics (www.supplydynamics.com) is a member of O’Neal Industries, the largest family-owned metals service center in the U.S. with sales of approximately $2.5 billion in 2011.
