VAI’s Material Requirements Planning Application Streamlines Medical Device Manufacturing and Order Fulfillment at American Diagnostic Corporation
Global Medical Device Manufacturer Increased Order Accuracy and Optimized Inventory Management with VAI S2K MRP Solution
Ronkonkoma, N.Y. – December 4, 2017 – VAI, a leading ERP software developer, today announced that American Diagnostic Corporation (ADC), a global core medical device manufacturer, has optimized the integration of its order fulfillment and inventory management and significantly improved its manufacturing process to ensure product availability to its customers with VAI’s S2K Material Requirements Planning (MRP) software solution.
ADC manufactures thousands of diagnostic medical products, personal instruments and accessories for the healthcare industry on a global scale, requiring a manufacturing solution to streamline manufacturing planning and component procurement coming from around the world. As one of the world’s premier medical device manufacturers, ADC has been dedicated to designing, manufacturing and supplying stethoscopes, blood pressure instruments and other core diagnostic products of the highest standards for over 30 years. Managing sufficient inventory levels is one of the most critical and time-consuming aspects of ADC's business, and partnering with VAI has helped to speed the company's medical components purchasing and order fulfillment workflow.
“Managing thousands of medical device components used to take many full time employees hours each week to analyze current and future inventory and distribution needs,” said Nick Selvaggio, Director of IT at ADC. “Now – within minutes –VAI’s MRP solution brings all components of inventory management together in a concise report, where we can now quickly determine what components will need to be purchased based on sales forecasts, purchasing orders, current inventory and production and which devices we need to produce to meet customer demand. We’ve used VAI’s solution for almost 20 years now, fill rates have increased to close to 100 percent and our inventory accuracy has increased significantly.”
VAI’s S2K MRP software is integrated with Customer Orders, Inventory, Sales Analysis, Purchasing, Forecasting and manufacturing applications in VAI’s S2K Enterprise suite to provide a comprehensive inventory report that can be converted into manufacturing work orders and vendor purchase orders. These reports keep ADC’s inventory at a manageable level by increasing order accuracy and significantly decreasing time spent manually tracking components in various manufacturing stages across the world.
“We designed our manufacturing process with a focus on importing quality components that must pass a rigorous quality control inspection,” continued Selvaggio. “While tracking the components through various stages of imports, quality control used to be extremely time consuming and led to inventory inaccuracies when logged manually. VAI’s MRP application has us completely confident in our inventory levels and order fulfillment.”
“ADC has been a long-time VAI partner, and over the past two decades we’ve enabled them to make substantial improvements to their inventory management, which helps them stay focused on their unique manufacturing approach.” said Kevin Dick, Development Engineer at VAI. “Managing material levels is a challenging process for many manufacturers because manual tracking is both time-consuming and accuracy-intensive. ADC has been able to successfully improve their inventory management with S2K MRP, and ultimately streamline order fulfillment.”
