Reduce Manual Processes and Streamline Operations


Does your company supply to the automotive, heavy truck, and other Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) industries?


Implementing JD Edwards’ Demand Scheduling Execution (DSE) solution with CAT can help reduce your operational expenses including complex contract management, painfully slow manual processes, and costly order fulfillment errors.

Built on existing JDE forecasting, sales order, inventory, warehouse, shipping, financials and EDI capabilities, CAT’s DSE provides a complete EDI thru-to-cash solution that automates demand and cumulative schedules, release shipping, and automotive advance ship notices (ASNs).

CAT’s Automotive Industry Expertise

  • CAT has worked extensively with Tier 1 and 2 Automotive Suppliers to bring them tremendous value and cost savings through automating the DSE process. Because the automotive industry has such a sophisticated and intricate supply chain business model, their supply chain needs more functional capabilities than any other manufacturing industry.

    To address this, CAT is a member of the AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) and we’ve built a strong EDI practice that helps JDE users manage their supply chain demand requirements. Working with DSE often requires expertise that goes beyond the typical EDI consultant’s knowledge and depth.

    We know that automotive suppliers need to handle high-volume orders in an incredibly fast-paced supply chain that is passed to them by the OEMs. This demand is almost always passed along to the suppliers via EDI or XML.
