Automotive Manufacturing

IFS Applications has a long history as a solution of choice for automotive ERP (enterprise resource planning).

Our automotive industry software customers enjoy support for the total lifecycle – from design integration through demand management, supply chain management, full-scale production, sales and aftersales service—fully integrated with financials and human resources. Plus support for lean initiatives like Kanban. IFS Applications is appropriate for vehicle manufacturer/assemblers and tier 1 to tier N suppliers.

AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRIES

IFS Applications for Automotive Suppliers includes solutions for manufacturing & distribution, supply chain, services, asset and project management, fully integrated with financials and human resources. These operate stand alone; integrated with existing corporate enterprise systems; or as part of a comprehensive IFS Applications deployment.

Some automotive suppliers need the same complex order-driven and mixed-mode functionality as other type manufacturers using IFS Applications. However, automotive-related production often specifically involves lean manufacturing—including Kanban—electronic data interchange (EDI), n-level packaging and multi-site planning & execution.

Of specific interest to vehicle manufacturers/assemblers are multiple-algorithm-based demand-planning and forecasting; service-level-based spare parts and planning; design-, engineer- and configure-to-order capability; program/project management, including make-to-project; and dynamic order processing/Seiban.

With IFS Eco-footprint Management, environmental impacts are assigned to product units. Reports detail impacts by product line, manufacturing process, business unit or business enterprise.
