Plex Systems Improves Supplier Quality Management

Last month, Plex Systems announced added enhancements in supplier quality management. The company provides ERP solutions for manufacturers, and these new, streamlined improvements will allow users to engage suppliers in ongoing improvements and operational efficiencies.

Now users of Plex Online, which is an integrated SaaS ERP solution, can permit anyone in their supply chain limited access to the Engineering Change Request system, which allows them to submit chain requests, share resulting savings, and alter specifications and processes. The idea behind this update is to help manufacturers boost productivity while cutting costs in product development cycles.

The supplier management functionality also has new supplier scorecards with expanded drill-down capabilities.  More specifically, there is a new capacity for calculating scores for “parent” and “child” suppliers and for individual businesses. There is also a function for defining multiple formulas for metric and target ranges in various metric groups. These scorecards have been improved for user-friendliness with color-coding for readability, as a means of simplifying the system so managers across the system can easily pull data.
