REQUISITION

With better requisition capabilities, you can keep Design, Procurement, and Quality in-sync to reduce costs, mitigate risks, shorten your time to market, and minimize operational waste due to poor collaboration.

Transferring knowledge from Design to Procurement.

Transferring knowledge from Design to Procurement for highly-engineered products cannot be compared to requesting a new copier. There are material groups, part numbers, quantities, deadlines, varying stakeholders/decision-makers, CAD/CAM drawings, criticality, and much more account for.

To compound the complexity, parts, components, and finished goods each require different refinements within supplier management, sourcing, and supply chain management.

There is no doubt that a significant amount of intelligence has to be transferred in order to execute upon the best strategies.

research shows that:

Recently, a study was conducted by Mitel to analyze the ways people interact both inside and outside an organization. Their research showed that:


Employees spend more than two-thirds of their day communicating and collaborating, yet lose 15% of their total work time due to ineffective means (namely inoperability of systems leading to use of email).


This equates to millions in lost productivity – and often more as the result of wrong decisions/assumptions.

Overcome the challenges of information transfer and inefficient collaboration through ASTRAS.

New Product Introduction (NPI)

Since PLM tools are not equipped to perform sourcing, manufacturing operations often struggle with bridging the gap between Design and Sourcing.

ASTRAS helps our customers overcome these challenges by:

  • ​​​​​​Integrating with ERP and PLM systems to copy key information.
  • Enabling sourcing to access all necessary information, from design specifications through production requirements, at their demand.
  • Providing system-driven collaboration to ensure that all stakeholders are folded into the process, as appropriate.
  • Ensuring that all part detail (e.g., associated BOM, drawings, volume, historical prices, allocations, etc.) is available throughout the part lifecycle.

Design Change

In manufacturing, there is no ‘comfort zone’. Continuous Improvement dictates change: change in process, change in design, etc. Embracing this change can be a challenge when there are information and process gaps between Manufacturing, Quality, Sourcing, and Design – each having a role in design changes.

ASTRAS helps our customers overcome the Design Change challenges by:

  • ​​​​​​Facilitating design change requests across key stakeholders.
  • Ensuring all documentation is available throughout the process.
  • Providing a mechanism to easily re-RFQ a single supplier or opening the bid to multiple preferred suppliers.
  • Govern the process from request through quality.

With better requisition capabilities, you can keep Design, Procurement, and Quality in-sync to reduce costs, mitigate risks, shorten your time to market, and minimize operational waste due to poor collaboration.
