Hyundai Motor Company has chosen SAP as the main solution provider for the company’s first US-based OEM assembly plant. Currently under construction in Montgomery, Alabama, the plant is the first North American automotive assembly site that will use SAP software for all of its operations.
The implementation will include mySAP Automotive – SAP’s platform for engineering, planning, supply chain management, procurement, and customer relationship management. The software supports the specific business processes within all types of automotive companies, including original equipment manufacturers, suppliers, importers, distributors (wholesale and retail), and service outlets.
Additionally, Hyundai will be able to process simultaneous inquiries from automotive dealers about service parts and accessories using SAP’s mySAP SCM. Hyundai’s business partners will be able to execute transactions directly in the SAP system and employees and partners can use a virtual warehouse to find out which service parts and accessories are in stock and where they are located in the supply chain.
The implementation will also make use of SAPs financial package mySAP Financials as well as mySAP Human Resources, its human resources software.
Hyundai’s IT subsidiary, Autoever, is already working on the initial phase of the implementation.
