Enterprise software provider QAD has reported that Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Trim Systems has deployed its technology to enable lean manufacturing operations and achieve inventory and manpower efficiency.
The implementation of QAD’s ‘Global Enterprise Edition’ (GXE) has enabled Yanfeng Visteon to reduce material inventory, stock space, and enhance data for logistical support and personnel savings.
QAD’s lean manufacturing software helps manufacturers effectively use Kanban systems to align inventory with demand for pull-based replenishment. It integrates electronic representation of Kanban processes with core ERP functions to provide level loading, tracking, and visibility of production, and supports electronic Kanban as well as physical card-based visual systems.
The software helps streamline supply chain communication so that companies can understand customer demand and calibrate production to take advantage of advanced manufacturing techniques such as continuous flow, pull replenishment, and Kanban visualization.
GXE also delivers functionality for business-critical concerns such as shared services, regulatory compliance, enterprise integration, and industry compliance.
