EDI and SCM industry solution for automotive suppliers
The industry solution for the automotive component supply industry based on YAVEON ProE-SCM and Microsoft Dynamics NAV is a comprehensive solution for organizing an automated flow of information and materials. The automotive industry is facing the continuous challenge of optimizing and maximizing the flexibility of production and logistics processes. The procurement supply chain is also characterized by standardized workflows. In this area, component suppliers are under more pressure than ever to participate in electronic and automated data exchange. The good news is: with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and the YAVEON ProE-SCM industry extension for the automotive component supply industry, this can be realized with the minimum of investment.
EDI with integrated converter
The EDI interface requires no external converter, as VDA, ODETTE, ANSI X12, and other standards are generated directly from Microsoft Dynamics, specifically for the relevant customer and the unloading points. Similarly, vendor logistics centers can be connected and operated. The material tags and messages also conform to AMES-T for Volkswagen and GTL for General Motors (2D bar code). All formats are freely configurable and new, customer-specific formats can be created at any time.
YAVEON ProE-SCM for Automotive supports the effective handling of large datasets and diverse messages. Whether processes are fully automated or processed manually is freely determined using parameter settings. Whether automated or manual, all processes are handled securely and any errors that occur can be precisely identified and resolved immediately. All data processed in the journals of YAVEON ProE-SCM is checked for plausibility based on the parameters and the set tolerances. If an error occurs, it is automatically escalated and reported. Manual intervention is possible at any point in the process. If certain processes cannot run without manual confirmation, this can be configured for each message type for specific items and customers.
Time schedules can be used to transmit messages entirely according to the customer's requirements. Message confirmations provide feedback that the message has been sent successfully. All messages are archived, logged, and can be called again directly from Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
In addition to message types, deadlines and events can also be monitored so that warning messages are issued, whether due to changes in the vendor's shipping notification or delays in production orders.
Efficient supply chain
With YAVEON ProE-SCM for Automotive, delivery schedules are processed securely and, if required, fully automatically in accordance with Odette DELFOR, VDA 4905 or ANSI X12 830. Just in time (JIT) delivery schedules are also available in the same way.
The standards for remote transmission of receipts, invoices, and the credit memo procedure are also defined in accordance with VDA 4908.
Goods receipt/issue slips (VDA 4912) and material tags in accordance with VDA 4902, Odette, AIAG, VW GTL etc. are generated directly in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. A VDA-compliant shipping order (4922) completes the delivery logistics functionality.
In addition to the item, the packing list can also contain the ODETTE IDs, DUNS number, unloading plants, unloading points, points of consumption, ILN, SSCC, EAN etc. as required. The packaging materials are also managed in a hierarchical relationship and the required packaging material is calculated automatically. The application can also be used for optimizing packaging materials and pallet configuration depending on the packaging material parameters.
Flexibility through abstraction:
Due to its universal platform technology, YAVEON ProE-SCM for Automotive offers interesting enhancement possibilities at no, or only a minimum, additional cost. For example, with no license extension, an electronic signature procedure can be integrated in the process in order to send legally-compliant invoice lists, or e.g. for sending invoices and credit memos to customers who are not bound by VDA standards. As well as EDI messages, the system also enables the sending and archiving of faxes and e-mails in this way. The data exchange for intercompany processes can also take place on the same platform. Different EDI message formats can be connected at any time.
