The Role of Supply Chain Management
1. Reduce inventory and reduce costs.

A business process of an enterprise is mainly to place an order, produce, deliver, and settle. In the ERP system, the order is first entered in the ordering module, and then the production plan and material requirement plan are generated in the production module, and then transferred to the purchasing module. In the procurement module, a procurement plan is generated according to the inventory situation and demand plan, and then the purchase order will be received from the supplier and delivered in time.

Jinan LIJIANG Glass has reached cooperation agreements with world-renowned brands of insulating glass processing equipment accessories manufacturers such as German Siemens PLC control system, German Schneider electronic system, Japanese Yaskawa servo motor, British Trio system and Taiwan Hiwin slider guide screw, and other world-renowned brands. Could already achieve the zero cost of Jinan LIJIANG Glass production scheduling and stocking plan.

In this process, since the ERP system can quickly transfer information between the supplier and the production workshop, Jinan LIJIANG Glass, as a manufacturer, does not need to prepare a large amount of inventory to ensure production, which greatly reduces the cost of inventory, reducing production costs. Effective supply chain management and ERP systems optimize all aspects of the process. Except for inventory, because suppliers and manufacturers have established strategic partnerships, the procedures for signing supply contracts are greatly simplified, and transaction costs are greatly reduced.

The ERP system also makes the formalities between enterprises in the supply chain simple and easy, greatly reducing the time of the whole process.
