Auto Ancillary Samadhan ERP
Auto Ancillary Samadhan – Micro Vertical on Microsoft Dynamics Nav delivers automotive industry manufacturing solutions that enable automotive suppliers to adopt flexible, changeable business processes with high ROI and easy access to actionable information for decision making and KPIs.
The industry challenges and imperatives
Customers of automotive manufacturers demand:
- Year-over-year cost reductions (by some automakers) by 5% or more
- Complete transparency into manufacturing operations—inventory, availability and/or shop floor status
- Precise and specific timing of production and deliveries (often within a four-hour window)
- Reduction of product lead times (often given an order to deliver within a 24 hours)
- Faster product development cycles (new automobiles moving from 48 months to 24 from drawing to showroom)
- Shorter product life cycles (vehicles that used to last decades now last a few years)
- That suppliers follow the speed and timeliness lead of OEMs, who are the strategic pacemakers of the industry
Challenges in operations:
- Manufacturers are pressured to adopt lean manufacturing best practices, but struggle to justify the resource and financial investment that accompanies such initiatives
- Rising regulatory pressure
- Increased expectations of automakers are causing productivity and quality to become less of a differentiator
- Enormous cost pressures from competition
- Significant cost pressures from rising raw material costs, energy costs, and reducing industry profits
- Increasing warranty requirements
- Legacy information systems often do not support new business practices (e.g., lean manufacturing, collaborative Product Development and Supply Chain Management) or differentiate business processes that often form the basis for small and mid-sized companies’ competitive strategy
- Systems are often department-based, not company based—manufacturers across all industry segments struggle to integrate disparate product, manufacturing, procurement, sales, and customer systems, which impedes their ability to capture a unified view of company performance.
- Real-time cost controls become a strategic imperative to remain competitive
- Operational productivity challenges—even the smallest plant floor inefficiencies can translate into significant losses for global manufacturers; gaining visibility into plant floor operations represents a critical step to bring products to market on time and on budget.

Advantage Microsoft Dynamics Nav
There is a lot of useful data hidden in all business transactions. This information loses its detail as reports are generated out of it. Why does it happen? It happens because you cannot spot a trend unless you summarize the information. Stigmatization by default means compromising on details.
Microsoft Dynamics gives you opportunity to retain all details and yet allow you to see information in any manner you want. And this information is available out of the box, on the fly. Even your interventions can be easily plugged into the software and monitored on an ongoing basis. The beauty is you will be able to do all this on your own and so will others, by ‘drill down’ facility and setting ‘filters’.
