AirSupply from SupplyOn connects Airbus with all its suppliers of ´flying
AirSupply, the new industry platform, ensures optimum collaboration along
the European aerospace industry´s entire supply chain.
Hallbergmoos, May 2, 2012 - Airbus, Europe´s leading aircraft manufacturer,
is deploying the AirSupply solution from SupplyOn to handle SCM processes
with all its production material suppliers. Pilot testing was completed at
the end of February 2012, and is now being followed by the connection of
some 700 Airbus suppliers. This will be completed by the beginning of 2013.
SupplyOn, the leading platform for cross-company collaboration in the
manufacturing industry, worked closely with Airbus to develop the AirSupply
industry solution. In cooperation with BoostAeroSpace, the solution will be
made available to the entire European aerospace industry in order to
optimize collaborative ordering and supply processes. In addition to the
activities at Airbus, the next few months will also see successive
deployment of AirSupply at EADS´s Eurocopter and Astrium divisions, and at
other aerospace companies such as Aircelle.
The suppliers to Airbus will in future also be using AirSupply to enhance
collaboration with their own suppliers. This end-to-end data flow over
several levels of the supply chain will bring greater stability to SCM
processes at Airbus by permitting early identification and elimination of
any bottlenecks. Airbus will also benefit from this new state-of-the art
solution in terms of higher performance and availability.
The AirSupply solution provides optimum support for the collaborative SCM
processes between customers and suppliers typically found in the aerospace
industry. Individually configurable notification and filter functions make
for efficient, exception-based methods of working. The solution supports
foresighted capacity planning, interactive fine tuning of delivery
quantities and delivery dates, order and delivery status tracking, as well
as the consumption-controlled logistics concept Vendor Managed Inventory.
The complex nature of the collaboration processes involved in coordinating
delivery volumes and dates requires the use of the web-based technology
integrated in AirSupply´s web front-end. Where there are direct data
connections using EDI, collaboration results are subsequently transferred
back to the supplier´s internal ERP system. In the case of a web
connection, the supplier can upload and download the relevant data.
SupplyOn - the leading platform for cross-company cooperation in the
manufacturing industry - enables the transparent, reliable and
cost-efficient handling of business processes with partners and suppliers
in the fields of purchasing, logistics, quality and finance.
SupplyOn´s web-based solutions are directly available without an IT project
for a rapid and inexpensive entry. The solutions can also be customized and
are easily integrated into internal ERP systems or existing employee or
supplier portals via defined interfaces.
SupplyOn´s industry solution is significantly more efficient compared to
internally or externally operated individual solutions. Any registered
company can cooperate with all their business partners via a central
platform. SupplyOn is a global benchmark for the electronic planning and
handling of cross-company business processes in the manufacturing industry.
More than 8,000 companies from 70 countries use SupplyOn´s global company
network, including renowned industrial companies such as Airbus, Astrium,
BMW Group, BorgWarner, Bosch, Continental, DEUTZ, Eurocopter, ITT, Kautex
Textron, Safran, Schaeffler, Schindler, Yazaki and ZF.
The central office of SupplyOn AG is located in Hallbergmoos near Munich,
Germany. The company generated sales revenues of 27 million euros in the
2011 business year.
