AutoEDI is an all-encompassing suite offering start-to-end solutions for Supply Chain Management. It completes the cycle from planning to inventory and shipment.
Process is as follows:
Releases would be received weekly from all customers in EDI (electronic data interchange) format. These would be validated and interpreted by the EDI Module, and are then ready for accepting into SYSPRO with a single click! These would be accepted without manipulation.
Next the Shipping Module would be used to review planned exports. This is a visual planning tool which shows the planner all foreign demand, current stock at customer (if consignment), current shipments and planned shipments. This would highlight any changes that are needed in the export shipping plan.
The Build Module is then used to review the rough-cut capacity plan, to check that it is still relevant in terms of new local releases and the new shipping plan. This pulls in demand, SOH, current build plan and capacity constraints to provide a simple visual planning board. Shortages are highlighted and can be addressed. This is all saved real-time back to SYSPRO as an MPS.
SYSPRO MRP is then run off the MPS (as opposed to customer releases). Standard BPO review process is followed.
These BPO’s are then published to the suppliers using the AutoEDI Supplier Portal. This enables the suppliers to receive their orders online, or via classic EDI. This process will enable a weekly planning cycle, as opposed to a monthly one, meaning that variation in demand is now passed on to the supplier.
When the supplier is ready to ship the goods, they would either send or generate an Inbound ASN. This ASN is then displayed in a visual stock reach report, showing the coverage of current and en-route materials against the MRP demand. It can also be sued to automatically receipt the goods on arrival.
DCI’s would be received daily in EDI from the applicable customers. These would then be reviewed against SOH and accepted into SYSPRO with a single click, using the DCI Module. This becomes a Sales Order which can be used to generate picking slips in your WMS system.
Once the goods have been dispatched or invoiced in SYSPRO, the ASN Module will automatically launch. The controller will review the information (pre-populated from SYSPRO), and print customer labels. The ASN message is then automatically generated and transmitted directly to the customer. This can include an electronic invoice if required.
