About

Together with a network of experienced SCM Consultants and Practitioners, we assist our customers to transform their supply chain into Adaptive Value Network, using enabling technologies and solutions like ERP, APS, EAI, RF Barcoding, RFID etc and Best Practices in logistics operation management and supply chain optimization.

In July 2004, we successfully delivered RF Barcoding Solutions for the MTU Asia Regional Distribution Centre in Singapore using WebSAPConsole, SAP J2EE Engine 6.20 with Pocket PC and Window CE based devices. This was the first WebSAPConsole live site in South East Asia, Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, India, Australia and New Zealand. The improvement in the warehouse operation achieved in the MTU Asia project includes process time reduction in putaway, picking, packing and stock check, elimination of paper filling and procurement.

In March 2005,  we assisted Siemens Business Services in the successful implementation of SAP Warehouse Management with RF Barcoding Solutions for Avnet Asia Regional Distribution Centre in Singapore using WebSAPConsole, SAP J2EE Engine 6.20 with Pocket PC and Window CE based devices.

From May 2006 to January 2008, we sucessfully implemented 80 interfaces with SAP ERP 6.0 and SAP GTS 7.0 for MTU Detroit Diesel, Inc using SAP Netweaver XI 3.0. The scenario includes Vendor EDI in ANSI X.12, Customer EDI in ANSI X.12, Test Bench, Pricing Management Applications, In-house developed  Engine Configurator, Material Master, BOM & ECM and After-Sales External Service Provider. We continue to provide the support in daily monitoring and enhancement of these interfaces. In addition, we have also delivered a Configured to Order Diesel Engine Assembly Solution in SAP ERP ECC 6.0 DIMP with the use of a single engineering Master Engine Model Master BOM and Master Routing for the planning of production parts based on usage probablities of the historical and future sales configuration and subsequent execution and control of the assembly process based on comprehensive Build Books generated from the SAP Production Orders.

Our most recent success is the successful development and deployment of our aVALUEn SecureFTP Adapter in SAP Netweaver PI 7.1. The aVALUEn SecureFTP Adapter supports the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) SFTP or Secure FTP that uses Secure Shell protocol (SSH) version 2.0 SSH to provide secure file transfer capability. Unlike the standard FTP Adapter that is supported by SAP, the aVALUEn SecureFTP Adapter encrypts both commands and data, preventing passwords and sensitive information from being transmitted over the networks.
