Supply Chain Solutions
Our expertise is in meeting supply chain, business integration, engineering, quality and IT infrastructure requirements of the automotive manufacturing industry.
For an international automotive manufacturer, VIVA has provided direction and/or operational assistance on an as-needed basis to the site business and process manager regarding issues that will/may affect the site planning and operational processes and procedures. Our work focuses on defining and reporting functional deficiencies, and/or issues found in Factory Planner (FP) and/or legacy interfaces to the Implementation Team, and developing workarounds, solutions, or alternatives to address the problem(s), resolve material/capacity and scheduling scenarios and work flow issues that arise in FP proposed plans. We also identify other business integration needs (i.e. applications to be replaced, identify process change requirements), translate business policies and planning requirements into application models, develop and validate functional/performance/systems integration test plans, and perform what-if analyses on material/capacity/scheduling functionalities to address user requirements from the planning/management community. We work with business lead to develop planning work flows, document modeling and planning specifications and lead training and user manual development.
