Fraser-based AIM Computer Solutions understands that the requirements of an ERP system to an automotive supplier; they also understand that all ERPs are not created equal.
For that reason, AIM now offers a free “Automotive Specific ERP Evaluation Worksheet” available by request from www.aimcom.com/products.htm.
“AIM takes pride in the fact that we always have and always will cater to the repetitive automotive supplier,” said Jerry Czernel, AIM vice president of operations. “We have found over the years that our customers appreciate our dedication to them, and often that same commitment is what keeps new customers coming in. New features like an EDI Interactive Dashboard, Visual Dispatcher, S&OP module, and a Staging Manager are all examples of our continuous improvement and dedication to the automotive supplier.”
Czernel noted that “There is a lot of confusion on what really delivers value to this unique market niche. For example, many software companies say they can provide EDI capabilities. But is the EDI offering complete? Is it fully mapped to the production schedule? Is EDI verified for part, lot and other validation points? Are there common utilities that are needed to ease model year changeovers or cums that do not tie out? These and a host of other automotive-specific issues must be included in the EDI offering.”
He added that “many other automotive mandated requirements that are also not found in most off-the-shelf manufacturing applications that can be overlooked in an evaluation process, resulting is constant band aids and fixes that try to retrofit a job costing application into a repetitive schedule based application, like AIM Vision.”
That’s AIM Computer Solutions’ flagship product.
