Key changes that will affect your company when supplying transitioned facilities:
Johnson Controls will only accept demand and shipment related communication via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). The standardized platform to be used will be EDIFACT. Alternatively the Johnson Controls Web EDI solution offered through our new EDI partner GXS can be used.
Johnson Controls will implement a global standard for the content and structure of the Advanced Shipping Notice including container, handling unit number / serial number and optional pick up sheet reference.
The Global Transport Label (GTL) will be the standard label format for Johnson Controls moving forward.
The integrated SAP solution will automate our Discrepancy Material Report, Supplier Material Rejection Report and Management Quality Review processes and make them more transparent. Johnson Controls will continue to consolidate all information into the Global Supplier Scorecard.
