CUSTOMER PROFILE

This Agricultural Equipment Manufacturer (AEM) is a global leader focused on the design, manufacture and distribution of agricultural machinery.

THE CHALLENGE

AEM’s manufacturing operation consists of two large tractor assembly plants and two feeder engine assembly plants. The combination of high overhead support costs for their manual Kanban card system, lost and duplicate Kanban cards, and a reliance on email, phone and fax to place, track and close material replenishment orders created an environment ripe with cost savings and cost avoidance improvement opportunities.

OUR SOLUTION

AEM evaluated various COTS supplier portal and e-Kanban systems before eventually selecting Ultriva’s Collaborative Supply Portal (CSP). First, AEM performed a detailed ‘Inventory Optimization Assessment’ (IOA) using Ultriva’s patent-pending ‘Inventory Optimization Tool’ and executed an in-depth, hands-on tests of the Portuguese language version of CSP against various use-case scenarios.

THE RESULTS

In only four months, AEM integrated Ultriva’s CSP with their JDE ERP system. The training of buyers and supplier and the configuration of scanners and printers took place in four days. AEM now enjoys closed-loop supply chain processes. In addition, AEM has started to realize reductions in inventory combined with significant improvements in employee productivity.
