I’m in Industrial Manufacturing. How Can E2open Help Me?
Industrial manufacturing companies today are experiencing higher risk from their supply base than ever before—in large part due to greater share of supplier specialization in the manufacture of parts for original equipment manufacturers. Typically, supplied materials and parts come from only a handful of suppliers, increasing the risk of supplier viability and overall supply assurance. Against this backdrop is a low-volume, time-sensitive environment where leading industrial manufacturers are employing technologies to leverage visibility and collaboration across their supply base in order to minimize risk and lower lead times. Since industrial manufacturers are faced with increasing customer demand and expectations, it is imperative that they address supply chain needs in order to provide quality products on time.
Today, the marketplace for industrial equipment has increased competition and risk, which forces leading industrial manufacturers to address the many pressures around
- Varying customer requirements
- Supply assurance and risk
- Long part lead times
- Product commoditization
E2open works with leading industrial manufacturers to solve for the lack of visibility and collaboration across their value network in order to provide further end-customer value by becoming more responsive and flexible to customer demand. Rather than controlling all aspects of manufacturing, which in many cases is only partially owned by the OEM, orchestration of supply chain processes across tiers of partners is required. Industrial manufacturers have come to E2open for capabilities that allow them to
- Respond to variable customer demands
- Get visibility into lead times
- Optimize inventory programs with partners
- Understand total landed costs
