FERRARI: Re-engineers supply chain processes and maintains very lean inventory with Infor LN


Situation analysis
- Implement new supply chain and manufacturing processes to support the launch of new V6 and V8 turbo engine families for Maserati, which is also part of the Fiat Chrysler Automobile Company.
- Launch and execute various information and communication technology (ICT) initiatives, which have been strictly defined, consolidated, and approved by Ferrari’s board of directors, to support global sales operations.
- Enhance the sophistication of IT systems to better manage internal processes and improve efficiency.

Innovation strategy
- Implement Infor LN in Gestione Industriale (the division that produces sport cars and engines) with a functional stage-gate approach to eliminate 59 legacy systems across the finance, sales, after sales, and technical assistance application landscape.
- Implement Infor LN in Gestione Sportiva (Ferrari’s Formula 1 team) to cover supply chain and manufacturing processes.
- Use Infor ION to create a simple and robust architecture to manage the 200+ interfaces in the application landscape.
- Collaborate with the Infor development team to increase the speed of the material resource planning (MRP) process, which became standard in Infor LN.

- Outsourced responsibility for material handling to an external third-party logistics company, thereby reducing the capital investment previously required for inventory and eliminating the risk of insufficient materials along the production line.
- Reduced the time it takes to run the MRP process by 4 hours by collaborating with Infor’s development team.
- Gained approval from the board of directors for Wave 3 of the Infor LN implementation by working with Infor Value Engineering to create a business case.
