  • 1. idexcel Supply chain Case study Manufacturing Organization Client Profile The company is focused on global distribution of materials and complex technical services for the production and manufacturing sectors in the aerospace industry. The company has global presence with a functioning network of companies, branches and agencies. A sophisticated warehouse, logistics and information logistics system with central and branch warehouses provides the basis for rapid delivery with lowest-possible inventories. All customers receive their materials not only just in time, but in exactly the sizes and shapes they need, whether as one-off items or in large quantities. Goals The Supply Chain partners have to offer an array of precision processing services to improve cycle time and efficiency with cut-to-size, machine-ready material and shipped just-in-time for their clients. Synchronize demand/supply, order, and inventory information across all branches Establish a highly coordinated set of supply chain processes and transportation mechanisms to ensure on-time delivery of all assemblies Idexcel Customer Case Study Eliminate latency in communicating demand/supply change and change impacts across branches Ensure continuity of supply while minimizing supply disruptions Improve on just-in-time delivery and ship-to-commit date with the end customer Provide visibility to all partners involved in the delivery of the completed assemblies. Challenges The existing applications/tools were not on an integrated platform, resulting in inefficient management of the manufacturing and logistics processes. The Client needed an integrated solution for all the branches, covering the end-to-end supply chain process, along with seamless integration with their externally supported applications. Find new ways to manage complex processes across multiple supply chain tiers for their branches Visibility and control into demand/supply and execution processes in order to reduce complexity, risk and cost
  • 2. To facilitate effective collaboration, there must be a trusted, single source of truth to evaluate real-time performance across the branch network Process automation with performance filters that allow management by exception and early identification of potential problems anywhere in the supply chain. Solution The end-to-end solution implemented by Idexcel was designed to allow the company and its branches to collaborate on planning schedules, issue work orders, track work order changes, plan cutting jobs, manage finished item inventory (super market), exchange shipping information, track shipments, and manage inventory consumption, across the branches involved in the manufacturing process. The reporting capabilities have allowed client and its branches to track the overall performance of the supply chain process. The solution was developed using Microsoft technologies WPF, WCF with MVVM architecture. Visual Studio 2010 with C# language on .Net framework 4.0 has been used to build the software components. SQL Server 2008 was used as the backend data storage. The user interface (UI) developed with WPF, has been designed for improved user experience, resulting in efficient data handling and user friendly navigations. On the server side, WCF technology has been used to develop the middleware layer (BAL, DAL) components, allowing easy future new developments. This solution has also been designed to integrate with SAP and other in-house engineering applications/tools that are used in their production process. The Agile project management methodology was used to execute this project, involving creation of product backlog, sprints planning, release management and effective project communication. Idexcel Customer Case Study Benefits The client realized the following major benefits from the solution we implemented. Eliminated latency in communicating demand/supply changes across multiple branches Ensured continuity of supply and minimized supply disruptions through the real-time synchronization of demand with available supply Improved on-time delivery to the end customer while minimizing logistics costs Eliminated many of the manual activities associated with the manufacturing and logistics processes Reporting and analysis for continued process improvement.
