To establish common global business processes in Europe, Middle East and Africa, the Americas and Asia, Adient is implementing a standardized ERP solution. Adient plants across the globe are in the process of being converted.
There are several key changes that will affect Adient suppliers working with transitioned locations:
- Adient will only accept demand and shipment related communication via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). The standardized platform to be used will be EDIFACT. Alternatively the Johnson Controls Web EDI solution offered through our new EDI partner GXS can be used
- Adient will implement a global standard for the content and structure of the Advanced Shipping Notice including container, handling unit number/serial number and optional pick-up sheet reference.
- The Global Transport Label (GTL) will be Adient’s standard label format.
- The integrated SAP solution will automate our Discrepancy Material Report, Supplier Material Rejection Report and Management Quality Review processes – making them more transparent. Adient will continue consolidating all information into the Global Supplier Scorecard.
