The SupplyOn platform is the backbone of successful international cross-company cooperation.
Electronic communications and business processes are now standard across much of our industry. The main focus for Bosch on the procurement side is on requests for quotations, standards exchanges, preventive quality assurance with initial sample approval, complaint management, logistics processes, and monitoring quality and logistics indicators.
The uniform interface to our suppliers is the SupplyOn portal (www.supplyon.de). This internet-based platform offers a wide range of helpful services: SupplyOn WebEDI, SupplyOn Document Manager, SupplyOn Sourcing, SupplyOn Performance Monitor, SupplyOn Problem Solver.
To ensure a reliable data interchange and further improve the performance of the global supply chain all Bosch suppliers are requested to join the community of SupplyOn users. This is a pre-condition for reliable longterm partnerships.
The timely release of supplier parts for series production during the Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) requires efficient cooperation across different functions and locations: Project management purchasing who does the planning and final release, quality managment in Bosch plants who does the part inspection and compares it with the suppliers measurements and regional technical service centers who are familiar with the suppliers production processes and who will check the PPAP documents. eISIR (electronic Initial Sample Inspection Report) provides a lean and fast way to exchange all necessary data. Especially for the Automotive area its usage is mandatory.
