The Visual Supplier Assessment and Analysis Modules (VSAAM) help organizations improve supply chain efficiencies, reduce risks, and decrease recovery time when there is a disruption. VSAAM was originally developed for the demanding needs of the Department of Defense and NASA, both of which have very sophisticated supply chain requirements.
The VSAAM modules deliver manufacturing supply chain visibility and detailed analytics, enabling organizations to better identify opportunities for improvement while mitigating risk. VSAAM also facilitates a faster response to real-time disruptions, yielding more resilient manufacturing supply chains.
VSAAM is a blended data and software solution that seamlessly extracts volumes of data from disparate internal and external sources. Our sophisticated algorithms help sort through volumes of data to extract the most relevant insights. The data and insights are presented in a very intuitive interface, putting actionable information in the hands of those who can use it.
The Supplier Visibility module presents a map of all your global suppliers, down to the lowest tier. Users can see the location for each node and can drill down to get supplier specifics, such as past and current contract data, capabilities, company size, certifications, and more.
The Supplier Discovery module gathers supplier capability data from numerous public and proprietary sources and maps them to your specific industry and regions. The result is the ability to quickly identify potential suppliers to augment existing capacity or replace lost capabilities.
This module couples visualization from CAD models with usage and supplier data to provide you with tremendous component insights. Users can then retrieve all the data related to the component and its supply chain with a simple click.
The Supplier Relationship module provides a map of an organization's supply chain down to its lowest tier. Understanding where each companyis in the supply chain helps better define where the risks lie and what products might be impacted.
The Demographic Analysis module lets organizations see where their suppliers are located and the value of their contracts by region. This is important for any organization that needs to report on their spending activities by region, particularly for suppliers that qualify as small or disadvantaged businesses.
Addressing the growing concern of counterfeit parts, this module evaluates both suppliers and components to identify likely areas of risk. The module's advanced algorithms evaluate volumes of data--ranging from the type of supplier to their location and past performance--to identify different risk factors for your particular supply chain.
Natural and man-made events can have an immediate and profound impact on supply chains. The Disaster Assessment module overlays disaster and supplier information, helping mitigate risks and minimize impacts.
One of the most powerful of the modules, Economic Resilience proactively identifies and monitors the performance of each supplier. All data is measured against key performance indicators (KPIs) that you establish. The system then issues alerts whenever the thresholds are exceeded so that action can be taken before it's too late.
