Organizations are part of supply chains. They need to manage suppliers, and manage expectations from their own clients. Being both a client to upstream suppliers and a supplier to downstream clients increases complexity, especially with regards to product compliance. That’s the complexity faced by Cooper Standard, a leading global supplier of sealing, fuel and brake delivery, and fluid transfer systems for the automotive industry.
As a leading provider of parts to the world’s largest automotive manufacturers, Cooper Standard has to manage requests for declarations on specific parts, changes to the list of substances of very high concern (SVHC) and other regulatory lists, as well as impacts from the changes. They used to manage things manually, which was not an effective approach. They turned to Enablon to simplify the process.
