Automotive suppliers work with blanket orders, which are processed as call-off orders and JIT orders. Figures are kept on cumulative delivered quantities to maintain on overview of deliveries that have been made. Delivery slips, transport data, invoices and credit note procedures are exchanged via EDI.
Our solution: BE-Automotive
BE-Automotive maps all common business processes used by suppliers, including ones that involve suppliers and manufacturers as well as ones that involve various suppliers (first-, second- and third-tier). Modules for order processing, production, logistics and procurement can be used, depending on the respective requirements.
Recommendations made by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA; Verband der Automobilindustrie) lay the groundwork for exchanging data using BE-Automotive. Automotive suppliers’ special needs regarding formats used for data exchange, whether these be VDA, Odette or EDIFACT, are also taken into account. On a physical level, the partners exchanging data are connected via converters. The integrated EDI solution provides optimal support for users.
