First introduced in 2002, ADvalue is the proprietary Avio-Diepen full material management system developed as a solution to the aviation industry’s needs to reduce inventory holding costs while improving performance and reducing Turn-Around-Time.
ADvalue addresses these challenges via closer supply chain integration, efficient forecasting, and inventory management. ADvalue has been developed to manage the customer’s operational processes and optimize the handling of Work Orders. The system supports lean processes by providing a complete array of supply chain services, such as on-site Vendor Owned Inventory management, materials at point of use, Customized Kitting, Just-In-Time, Dock to Stock delivery, and Quality Certificates management. ADvalue also offers unparalleled parts traceability via UPN (Unique Part Number), which is assigned to all parts managed with the system.
Even when ADvalue functions as stand alone system, customers have recognized sizeable reductions in inventory holding cost and total cost of operation, and improvements in throughput and Turn-Around-Time. With a minor level of integration of ADvalue into a customer’s ERP system, additional savings are achieved by entrusting to ADvalue all routine administrative operations such as dedicated consignment stock planning and monitoring, replenishment order placement, material handling, and invoicing. The flow of material is managed by Avio-Diepen staff either on-site or remotely via Internet connectivity.
ADvalue has been successfully implemented at components and accessories overhaul shops around the world; moreover, the system can be configured to meet the requirements and bring value to many repair and production shops in the aerospace industry. The latest upgrade, ADvalue 2.1 has been launched in 2011 in response to growing demand from OEM and MRO organizations for a solution that can reduce Total Cost of operations without compromising the service level to their customers. ADvalue provides tomorrow’s material management requirements, today.
