Unless we implement technologies that manages the supply chain as a single holistic entity (from factory to consumer), we can never attain end-to-end control and we can never give the consumer visibility and reliability. The term ‘Digitalization’ is today frequently held up as the solution to all problems, but digitalization is ultimately only a means of extracting, collection and consuming data from real-world sources. In the absence of a technology that can make sense of it, both in isolation and in the context of the whole, such data is relatively worthless
For ProAct, process digitalisation means a technology that provides a single, seamless, overarching view of the supply chain from production order to consumer delivery and indeed on into aftermarket. It means not tying the business to an oversimplified, inflexible, vanilla supply chain process that misses many of the key stages of control. It means being in control of every service provider in that supply chain, notifying them of their tasks, schedules and obligations and receiving back real-time updates that automatically reproject and re-predict the life of the vehicle.
It means technology that can be rapidly configured and then perpetually reconfigured to deal with and manage every conceivable process and activity that future supply chains may throw at us without be inhibited by complexity. It is a seamless platform to receive and transmit real-time information to or from any type of data source or device though any method. It means leveraging the power of connected vehicles and real-world devices, through use of telematics to gain real-time information and status of the vehicle.
At the heart of this capability is ProAct’s unique Process digitalization Engine (PDE), a unique technology that is highly flexible, highly configurable, highly collaborative and highly automated. Its job to plan, manage, execute in real-time, highly complex vehicle supply chains in a completely holistic and seamless manner. It is not inhibited by the complexity or granularity of the supply chain processes and can be configured to digitalise and automate virtually any finished vehicle scenario both now and for the future.
ProAct’s PDE is a technology found nowhere else and one that has evolved to meet the rapidly changing needs of the supply chain industry over many years. Many software solutions claim to be process orientated and configurable, but in most, if not all cases the scope of configuration is limited, the processes usually predefined and its implementation often difficult . ProAct’s PDE does not place these restrictions on the user, enables not technical users to change processes and decision logic and its effect on execution can be felt in real-time. No other finished vehicle control tower or yard management technology has this capability.
