CUSTOMER PRAISE, “Honda gave suppliers a 30-day window to achieve 97% compliancy with ASNs (advanced ship notifications). We met the obligation with 99%-plus accuracy and ahead of schedule.” “In areas where EDI (electronic data interchange) to production scheduling, shipping, billing, and ASNs took 14 employees, we have dropped to seven with more accuracy than we had with the additional employees.” “As our inventory levels dropped, we realized the other benefits of lean manufacturing. Expedites and premium freight, unplanned overtime, and other cost reductions were soon realized.” “The system’s fully integrated EDI is by far the best I’ve ever seen. Customer requirements are automatically fed into the order processing application and updated throughout the entire system.”
