Manufacturing Site Information

Quality and technical professionals can collect detailed information about each of their suppliers’ manufacturing sites.

About Manufacturing Site Information

MSI enables detailed site-specific information to be collected for all manufacturing sites, with the ability to request different information for different sites based on customisable risk factors. The information collected sits alongside all other supplier information in the ARCUS® cloud-based database, ensuring complete visibility.

MSI enables site-specific information including Halal, Kosher, GFSI, Organic, Site Insurance, Codes of Conduct, and Allergen policies and presence, to be entered directly by the supplier with automated workflows that automatically chase suppliers for incomplete or out of date information. Key documents are scanned by artificial intelligence at the point of upload, delivering confidence in the supply chain.

MSI features an automated scoring functionality to identify which suppliers and which of their sites provide the greatest risks. This enables professionals with responsibility for approving manufacturing sites to identify which sites can be approved, approved with conditions, including those requiring an audit, and those sites which cannot be approved.

What are the benefits?

  • No re-keying of information – saving time and reducing errors
  • Collect detailed information on each manufacturing site
  • Scoring can be assigned to each or a selection of questions
  • Ensure all approved sites conform to required practices and standards
  • All manufacturing site information sits alongside SIM record
  • Printable site data sheets can be created and downloaded

Case Study

AAK (carousel)

AAK uses the ARCUS® Supplier Information Management (SIM) module to manage key supplier data, including production, quality and technical information at a company and site level. This ensures complete transparency and compliance associated with supply chain risks across the geographical areas ARCUS® SIM is deployed in.

ARCUS® SIM’s Manufacturing Site Information (MSI) plug-in enables the technical team to request detailed manufacturing site-specific information, certifications and policies at the same time as their procurement colleagues invite suppliers to on-board. The information uploaded by the supplier enables the team to determine which products can be supplied and from which manufacturing site. This data is then stored centrally in the cloud, meaning there is never a need to re-key the information.

The ability to designate which manufacturing sites the products are supplied from has significantly improved the control the teams at AAK have over their supply chain and helps to mitigate the risks.
