Supply Chain Execution

Increase performance and visibility of your Supply Chain

What is Supply Chain Management?
"Supply Chain Management encompasses the planning and management of all activities involved in sourcing and procurement, conversion, and all logistics management activities. Importantly, it also includes coordination and collaboration with channel partners, which can be suppliers, intermediaries, third-party service providers, and customers. In essence, supply chain management integrates supply and demand management within and across companies. Supply Chain Management is an integrating function with primary responsibility for linking major business functions and business processes within and across companies into a cohesive and high-performing business model. It includes all of the logistics management activities noted above, as well as manufacturing operations, and it drives coordination of processes and activities with and across marketing, sales, product design, finance and information technology."

Manufacturing Execution

Low Total Cost of Ownership for Your Shop Floor and Warehouse

The HighJump manufacturing execution system (MES) is built to meet the challenges of discrete, multi-step operations in both work order & demand driven manufacturing environments. HighJump’s MES bridges the disconnect between the traditional MES and warehouse management system (WMS), enabling optimal inventory flow throughout the shop floor.

Orchestrate Labor, Machines, Schedules and Materials

The HighJump MES coordinates key aspects of production, including resources, materials and schedules. Planners can easily dispatch schedule changes to the shop floor electronically, eliminating the time, labor and errors associated with paper-based distribution. Once released, work against the schedules may be viewed and managed in real time by planners, supervisors and management.

Manufacturing Shop Floor Touch Screen

HighJump’s manufacturing execution system allows you to leverage shop floor touch screens running a Web browser to streamline the flow of critical information and simplify the reporting and viewing of information in real time. HighJump Software’s single, all-inclusive Web user interface electronically links documentation and work orders directly to the shop floor. Our shop floor employees have immediate access to drawings, quality control documents and process preparation guides. Because of its simplicity and intuitive design, the shop floor touch screen enables rapid learning and lowers employee training costs—not to mention quick and easy upgrades for the IT team.

Handling Complex Genealogy

The HighJump MES provides the shop floor execution and visibility needed to effectively deal with complex genealogy and traceability requirements. Using data from the automation layer or transactions from shop floor workers, the system ties lot numbers, serial numbers or other data to the appropriate finished goods, as well as back to the work order or demand signal. The robust data model and transaction history enable a variety of Web-based reports for viewing unit histories, genealogies and part traceability.

Manufacturing Quality Management

Acquiring quality data and interpreting results are key aspects of creating products that meet your stringent standards. The HighJump manufacturing execution system (MES) allows quality management to track product quality levels, and if necessary, quickly implement an updated quality plan to further refine the test result data being collected.

Yard Management

Simplify Yard Transactions With Graphical Drag-and-Drop Functionality

Warehouse management efficiency has a direct correlation to inventory optimization throughout the supply chain. Accomplishing this requires you to truly maximize inventory flow not only inside your warehouse, but also as inventory enters and leaves the yard outside.

The HighJump™ Yard Advantage yard management system (YMS) provides real-time information, intelligent work direction and complete visibility of trucks, trailers, drivers, goods and materials—from the moment they arrive at the gate to the moment they leave your facility. With a graphical interface, you can manage yard transactions easily. Drag-and-drop functionality converts on-screen trailer moves into RF-directed work for yard drivers. At-a-glance symbols display key information such as trailer type, status, disposition, ownership, which trailers are damaged/out of service, and fuel remaining in refrigerated vehicles.

Track the location of trailers and other equipment—no matter where it ends up in the yard—with RFID-based, real-time location tracking. This ensures security and streamlines workflows by providing you with the actual position of equipment in the yard, eliminating time-consuming searches for misplaced trailers. Additionally, dynamic appointment scheduling capabilities will streamline dock assignments, helping to ensure you don’t double book docks—even if circumstances change at the last minute.

Supplier Enablement

Strengthen Supplier Communication

Your ability to meet customer demand is directly determined by your suppliers’ ability to deliver. But you are likely facing a continuous battle with extended cycle times, material shortages, unplanned receipts, high inventory and transportation costs, vendor compliance issues and difficulty reconciling invoices. These problems could be resolved by having system-to-system communication between you and your suppliers using supplier enablement software.

HighJump™ Supplier Advantage supplier enablement software empowers you to dramatically increase the speed of receiving operations, lower inventory levels and push work such as labeling to your suppliers—whether they're around the corner or across the ocean. A secure Web portal provides the basis for real-time information sharing and improved inventory visibility, critical factors in enhancing collaboration and streamlining supply chain operations. Achieving and maintaining collaboration between your distribution center and your supplier network reduces cycle times through real-time communication of demand, order status and potential exceptions. HighJump Supplier Advantage also incorporates robust event management functionality to promote proactive issue identification and resolution. This reduces costs by alerting managers and suppliers (via e-mail, pager, fax or phone) to supply chain events and exceptions.
