EdDesign   SUPPLY CHAIN
Today car manufacturers are facing the request of bringing faster products to market and with lower costs. Many manufacturers have taken teps to manage the total cost (TCM) so that the skills of their suppliers can be exploited to increase revenues and reduce the cost of goods sold. The strategic supplies, an important element of TCM, aim to reduce the cost of goods sold not via auction for reduction or forced on suppliers, but rather establishing a fruitful collaboration for all parties. This type of collaboration is becoming increasingly more important at a time when the industry is moving toward a growing externalization, where the automotive industry suppliers assume responsibility for the design and manufacture of complete components, assemblies and subsystems.
The Automotive Supply Chain Management solution of ED GROUP provides car manufacturers and their suppliers a package of tools to manage the first supply cycle from requirements gathering to the monitoring and continuous improvement of performance of the supplier. The solution is the platform on which the supply chain is cataloged and profiled for geographic locations, production capacities etc.. Once you have defined the infrastructure, customers can easily communicate the needs of their development departments and meet the needs of the suppliers.
Purchasing managers create and manage requests for quotes (RFQs) complete with voluminous documents, specifications and other relevant information shared in real time. These procedures improve communication and understanding with all potential suppliers, facilitating and improving the processes of negotiation.
The process of selection of suppliers is one of the most important and delicate activity in the development process. In most cases, the majority of the total costs for the supply of a product / service are defined at this stage. Decisions should not be taken lightly and require the collection, organization and analysis of complex information from different suppliers. With the solution of ED GROUP, purchasing managers may collect such information for an efficient comparison and efficient analysis, as well as define the acceptance criteria for an objective evaluation of supplier responses.

The supply process cannot be considered concluded until the award of contracts. Even after the deal, in fact, the exchange of vital information continues. With the solution of ED GROUP, customers and their suppliers can continue to work together at all stages of product development to "stay on the course" and avoid costly communication errors.
Are managed the requests for changes, suppliers scores are updated and quality plans are developed jointly by the customer and suppliers. The historical data of the performance monitoring can be used in future supply processes to ensure that the company has a supply chain able to ensure the success of product launches.
