A&D manufacturers and their suppliers now depend more than ever on global supply chains. As they reach across time zones, languages and cultures, supply chains have to work around challenges that build up costs and drag down production schedules. Communication between distributed engineering and production centers can be labored and error-prone. These problems are often compounded by repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production methods, and concern that the shop floor may not be working with current data. Ideally, global companies should be able to design products at any location and produce them at selected sites, with all stakeholders from design to the shop floor working concurrently from a single unique global data source. Understand how manufacturing companies can deliver machined parts faster and increase revenue by reducing costs – despite operating globally across time zones and cultures.

Business executives and managers at business-to-business (B2B) enterprises care about time, money, competitive advantage, customer loyalty and growth. Few pay much attention to the vital IT infrastructure that supports transactions and collaboration with trading partners—though that B2B backbone directly affects performance and profitability. In fact, just 26 percent of business managers view B2B integration as a competitive differentiator, according to a study for IBM by Vanson Bourne, a research consultancy. As a result, many enterprises continue to utilize manual and error-prone emails, faxes and file transfers for B2B transactions. Reliance on complex, brittle and antiquated systems to exchange critical data impacts time to market, cost-efficiency and satisfaction across suppliers and end-customers. Modernization of B2B integration in recent years has moved forward in fits and starts, often undermined by competing priorities and misalignment between business and IT managers.

A new NPR/Marist poll reveals that one in five jobs in the U.S. is held by a worker under contract. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the entire workforce in the U.S. within the next decade. More and more organizations have begun to see contractors and suppliers as valuable business partners intrinsic to driving service and product innovation. For many companies, especially those operating in highly regulated industries, managing compliance in-house for all of these suppliers can be burdensome. But the cost of non-compliance — in the form of penalties, fines, productivity losses, settlement costs, and inefficiencies — is ruinous. This white paper will discuss: • The hidden costs of ignoring contractor management • Best practices towards holistic compliance and governance • The cost of different contractor management systems • How to get the highest ROI in your supply chain

Accounts Payable is a fundamental activity for nearly all businesses. Pick any enterprise and you can bet there is an AP function at the heart of financial operations. The obligation to pay off short-term debt is one that every company must satisfy. But more than that, the process to do it must be efficient and productive. If you get behind on your obligations you risk missing important financial discounts, defaulting with creditors, and damaging your reputation with suppliers and stakeholders. CFOs face the challenges associated with Accounts Payable…and it’s easy to lose sleep. As other areas of business and commerce have become more and more paperless, the accounts payable process in most organizations remains mired in paper copies and manual workflow. The result is an often costly and people-intensive process that leaves companies vulnerable to competitors and financial executives with a growing unease over the inherent inefficiencies.

WD Music is a one-of-a-kind company, but their path to growth was blocked by a problem faced by thousands of small and mid-sized businesses: their precious capital was tied up in a long cash-conversion cycle. WD Music had to pay suppliers in-full for guitar parts, then wait weeks or months to recoup the cash from customer sales. This left them without the working capital to buy more inventory, fulfill more orders and create a healthier, more profitable business. One day, Larry Davis, Vice President of WD Music, was speaking with Greg Kleehammer, from UPS Capital®. Kleehammer asked a simple question: “What if you could take one of your company’s biggest assets — your in-transit inventory — and turn it into working capital?” That’s how WD Music discovered an alternative-financing solution that opened the door to more growth, more prosperity and a lot less stress.

CEOs seeking to disrupt their sector rather than be disrupted, are turning to Agile development methods in order to accelerate development and rapidly adapt to changes in business requirements. Agile development is a group of methodologies, utilising incremental, iterative work sequences or sprints delivered by cross-functional teams and represents a fundamentally different way of working from traditional waterfall development. One of the major barriers to successful adoption of Agile ways of working, is a lack of industry consensus on how to successfully contract for Agile. The traditional Time & Materials approach is slow, and can obstruct collaboration. This paper discusses the alternative models for sourcing Agile and gives recommendations that benefit both customer and suppliers.

Industrial enterprises around the world are retooling their factories with advanced technologies to boost manufacturing flexibility and speed, achieving new levels of overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), supply chain responsiveness, and customer satisfaction in the process. This renaissance reflects very real pressures industry players face today. For years, traditional factories have been operating at a disadvantage, impeded by production environments that are “disconnected”—at the very least strictly gated—to corporate business systems, to supply chains, and to customers and partners. Managers of these traditional factories say the feeling is akin to flying blind. These are operations where plant floors, front offices, and suppliers operate in independent silos, where managers have only hazy visibility into downtime and quality problems, and where the root causes of inefficiencies are rarely understood or addressed.
