Information : On-Line Spares Acquisitioning
McDonnell Douglas Aerospace (MDA)-St. Louis has developed an on-line spare parts requisitioning capability that enables customers to access and order spare parts automatically through the use of Electronic Data Interchange. Initial operations address Spare Part Order Administration and EDI transactions for Request for Quote (840) and Response (843) and are currently operational with the Navy’s Aviation Supply Office. Although the present process for on-line requisitioning is a mixture of both manual and automated methods, these improvements have greatly reduced requisition time from several months to several days. MDA-St. Louis’ benchmarking results in this area indicate that it can expect further improvements and reach a cycle time of about two hours by fully automating the process.
