Welcome to Avion...

Supply Chain Management

Avion manages its SCM business through a robust manufacturing software which controls processes from quote/sales to procurement, stores production and delivery to the customer. The software can also track raw materials to finished products, this allows Avion to compile delivery documentation packages as per the customer's requirements.

Avion's manufacturing software allows its SCM processes to control split production batches either internally or externally - this supports outsourced production or special process activities as applicable. Avion can purchase material directly to the production jobs and complete LIFO, FIFO and average and standard costing inventory. The software can also track vendor's on-time and scrap performance and allow generation of reports to measure Avion's vendor's performance. The software can automatically generate packing slips, bills of lading and shipping labels with hardware identification
