Harley-Davidson Selects Sterling Web Forms

Monday 8 December 2003 11:00 CET | News

Sterling Web Forms and bar code technology is helping Harley-Davidson in its just-in-time parts supply and manufacturing performance.

Harley-Davidson chose Sterling Web Forms to reach its non-EDI parts suppliers and now has approximately 200 partners on board. In order to keep pace with its supply chain initiatives, Harley-Davidson went a step further and created a real-time system with bar coding for all parts. Sterling Commerce was able to design a custom solution that leveraged Harley-Davidsons existing Web Forms system and provided the ability to deal with even the smallest suppliers using bar code technology. Harley-Davidsons supply chain improvement initiatives created off-site Material Velocity Centers that replaced in-factory receiving areas. The move simultaneously centralizes parts supplies, improves logistics, frees up valuable factory floor space and creates a more efficient, integrated supply chain and manufacturing operation. An implementation that began earlier this year is now available to all of Harley-Davidsons Web Forms partners. Starr noted that partner compliance was enhanced by Sterling Commerce E-Community Development services that aided in the task of bringing suppliers on board to the new system. All of Harley-Davidsons Web Forms-capable suppliers can now print bar codes off the Sterling Web Forms system and all factory-destined inventory now displays a bar code as part of the advanced shipping notice process.
