Material Check

Background

Our customer sales team has to work on realistic customer commitments and to depend on upstream supply chain to feed information. On the other hand procurement will be managing the multi-dimensional variables in demand and supply scenarios by making required material available at right time in right quantity.

Challenge

Today’s configure to order supply chains are complex and this creates separate challenges for sales and procurement organizations. One of the biggest challenge both organization face is limited collaboration and low level of material flow visibility in overall chain.

Business Challenges

  1. Customer commitments are inaccu-rate due to low material visibility at desired configuration level
  2. Low or no visibility on what could be the available alternative product configurations which could be discussed with customers
  3. Supplier to customer level material flow visibility is patchy

Solution

Clevercheck is designed to enable both organizations to work in collaboration and view easy to use accurate information from all the nodes to push revenues and savings up. Clevercheck enables sales department to check product availability in real time, view available alternates, simulate options on demand-based on features, and have accurate future pipeline by just tapping on Mobile app. So no more struggles with individual emails and spreadsheets before giving delivery commitments to customers.

On the other hand Clevercheck enables procurement department to have all sales functionality on products plus tracking shortages in real time, drilling down on raw materials, viewing supplier to customer material flow, blocking material for orders, pushing buy/hold signals to ERP, and setting inventory targets with the help of scientific algorithms to reduce cost.

Major Clevercheck features

  1. Product hierarchy based auto suggestive search to easily find products
  2. Chain level to specific product level drill down ability with working details
  3. Scientific multi variable raw material optimization to advise dynamic inventory levels to meet customer demand and keep commitments high while tight control on cost
  4. During regression testing we have done Web Application security (OWASP) and uncovered major vulnerabilities in the application to make it more secure
  5. Virtual assembly and product simulation from various forms of raw material through real factory rules to give realistic customer commitments
  6. Engine provides total maximum availability based on supplier commitments, raw material availability, sub assembly availability and considers the alternate raw material, lead time, and material cost
  7. Beautiful and user friendly e-commerce type layouts and work flow to make the enterprise simulations easy and interesting for users without any need of extensive training
