For an automotive components manufacturer, it’s not enough to just have the best product. Success is found through having the correct product, at the correct price, in the correct place, and the correct time for the customer, all while improving production flow and cycle times. Automotive ERP from SYSPRO delivers creative and innovative solutions to bridge challenges into one manageable system for Automotive Components and Accessories. The Blanket Sales Order and Releases module is able to be tailored for the specific needs of the automotive industry in which original equipment manufacturers regularly check order contracts held with component suppliers.

SYSPRO’s manufacturing software enables you to manage the entire supply chain. From production planning and scheduling to purchasing and invoicing, allowing for a coherent approach to operations. Sales quotas and operations budgets are accurately forecast and progress on the shop floor, in the warehouse and distribution centre are easily tracked. SYSPRO automotive ERP helps to streamline your business. Our inventory forecasting and serial tracking systems forecast, record and replenish inventories, while our engineering control applications provide the means to control applications, to control record changes to bills of materials and enable access to archived bills.

How can syspro help?

Automotive companies have specific characteristics and face unique challenges that must be addressed in order to remain competitive. Our flexible automotive ERP solutions will help you remain at the forefront of a demanding industry and enable you to…

Adopt LEAN manufacturing practices

The queries and reports in Work in Progress enable you to quickly assess the statuses, inventories and costs associated with work in progress, and provide metrics on utilization, efficiency, scrap and rework, while customer and supplier delivery performance metrics are provided by the Sales Order and Purchase Order and Inventory Optimization modules.

Improve forecast accuracy

Forecast accuracy depends not only on the regular evaluation of the forecast error, but also on the integrity and nature of the source data. In SYSPRO, forecast accuracy is enhanced through the ability to automatically filter and adjust outliers, as well as to manually adjust forecast base data for quantitative and qualitative factors. Lost sales can also be included in the demand profile.

Manage product recalls

SYSPRO automotive ERP includes the facilities to trace items from component part origins to the customer, and vice versa, as well as the ability to identify the processor of every transaction or data change associated with the item, via Electronic Signatures. Full upward and downward searches and extraction of the integrated traceability and data is provided by SYSPRO’s queries, and standard and user-defined reports.

Maximise profitability in a low margin environment

SYSPRO enables you to implement continuous improvement by giving you visibility to costs and profits across the business and helping you to identify issues as they occur. This includes variations in expected and actual raw material and production costs; late supplier deliveries; obsolete, slow-moving and excessive inventories; and product defects and scrap.

Project and manage cash flow

The Cashflow Forecasting model enables managers to view their company’s projected cash position into the future by applying outstanding payables (cash requirements), receivables (payment projections) and other cash projections to the current bank balances. The information is presented in graphs and listviews in customizable panes.

Streamline business processes and IT systems

A built-in workflow engine-SYSPRO Workflow Services (SWS)-enables you to streamline end-to-end business process activities within SYSPRO, as well as to create efficient interactions between SYSPRO and external touchpoints. Built on the Microsoft Windows Communication Foundation, SWS enables you to apply rules-based control over business processes , thereby promoting process cohesion, as well as collaboration among process role-players.
