Parts Resale

Resale/Directed-Buy

The Resale module allows OEMs to manage Steel Resale/Directed-Buy Programs in a very efficient manner.   It allows users to validate metals usage by comparing OEM forecasted demand –to- Stamper orders –to- metals producer shipments.  Calculations are made for material subsidies and other costs, including calculation of scrap-premium recovery amounts (in multiple currencies, if appropriate).  Some benefits of our Resale/Directed-buy module include the following:

 

Parts Management

  • OEM Bill Of Materials data synchronization
  • Track pricing history of individual parts
  • Capture changes to data (from/to, who, when, reason for change)
  • Part data approval processes to ensure validity of data

Scrap Recovery

  • Ability to recover scrap premiums based on actual data (important in periods of high scrap costs)
  • Increased payments from suppliers for Scrap Recovery

Yield savings

  • Better management of blank sizes (reduce waste in blanks)
  • Steel consolidation opportunities (fewer material variants)
  • Fewer issues with incorrect steel shipments

Manpower savings

  • Significantly less labor is required to administer Steel Resale programs
  • Quick and easy overview of steel supply chain dynamics
  • Purchase Order data is available for all appropriate partners to see.
  • Automated ordering

Resale Management

  • Metal usage: audit capability to the part level (Demand vs Ordered vs Shipped)
  • Subsidy calculation to the individual part level for any time period
  • Subsidy forecasts to the part level for future time periods
  • Pricing management (including pricing history, by part and steel type)
  • Report generation for US Customs
  • Automated invoicing from steel supplier
