Supply chain management system

The management of material flows ensures the right raw materials to the right place at the right time

Management of inbound and outbound material flows of energy companies is a multi-stage process in which several different stakeholders participate.

From the viewpoint of optimal material utilization, it is important that the entire supply chain co-operates seamlessly and the data created in the process is communicated reliably and in real time between the different stakeholders.

An inadequately managed supply chain can be identified by the following:

In reporting, time is spent on Excel twiddling and information is fragmented

Production inefficiency due to a lack of right materials

Hidden costs are not identified and time is spent on correcting human errors.

Knowledge is the key to efficient supply chain management

The information generated in the different stages of the supply chain, such as the origin and price of raw materials, the operator’s capacity and demand, and delivery schedules, should be available in real time, conveniently and reliably for the different parties of the supply chain for implementation of efficient material management. This is achieved by a supply chain management system that digitizes the necessary data into a single system.
