Accton’s 30 years of experience in supplying global top-tier players with quality network products also includes its comprehensive supply-chain services. By maintaining close working relationships with both upstream and downstream suppliers, Accton can retain reliable and stable sources of materials to ensure that production always meets delivery commitments on time.
Customers require responsive supply chain management systems that are also flexible and efficient. Accton’s complete supply, planning, and logistic services focus on three main areas to continuously improve supply-chain management.
Open Communication — A web-based Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system facilitates the direct integration of both upstream and downstream suppliers, supporting build plans, supply commitment, POs, shipping logs etc. The system enables Accton to share production forecasts, orders, quality, and inventory information with suppliers and obtain their responses in real time. When supply is aligned with demand, strategies and integrated business plans can be smoothly executed. The result is more efficient procurement procedures, accurate material planning, and flexible delivery schedules.
Efficiency — To maintain and improve efficiency of the supply chain firstly requires constant communication with suppliers and vendors. This communication delivers the best and most economical operation for customers and ensures sufficient materials and aggressive procurement plans to fulfill customer demands. Efficiency and cost savings are also facilitated through an auto-scheduling system that controls supplies from FCST/order to MP, making it easy to adjust production capacity to meet customer needs.
- Better Service — Accton always strives to provide the best possible services to its customers. By running a real-time supply network with a comprehensive supply chain management (SCM) process, Accton can control all aspects of the supply chain from demand planning to inventory management. The real-time feedback from customers and suppliers is one the main avenues for improving services.
Moving forward, Accton will continue to leverage worldwide production resources and employ the best possible systems.
