Performance Made Visual: Supplier Collaboration Creates Supply Chain Value
Freudenberg-NOK General Partnership (Freudenberg-NOK) is a joint venture between Freudenberg & Co. in Germany and NOK Corp. in Japan. Freudenberg-NOK's North American plants are the company's benchmark for Lean practices, with QAD Enterprise Applications as its core ERP system. Managing over 400 suppliers and 8,600-plus SKUs requires a high degree of supply chain collaboration. It's critical to maintain constant communication with suppliers to ensure that all plants have adequate materials to meet demand. To master these challenges Freudenberg-NOK chose QAD. Integration with QAD Enterprise Applications, coupled with low purchase and maintenance costs, made QAD Supply Chain Portal (Formally QAD SV) the natural choice. QAD SCP is a hosted Web-based supply chain portal application; there's no installation or additional hardware needed.
