The Zero-RFQ initiative has dramatically accelerated Alstom’s sourcing process by automating supplier selection. By collaborating with suppliers to configure aPriori’s digital factories to reflect each supplier’s cost structure, Alstom benefits from near-instant quotes without sacrificing accuracy. Their team estimates that the Zero-RFQ process is driving a 40% savings on recurring costs.
Alstom plans to continue rolling out aPriori to additional users across its global operations. In addition to a continued high volume of manufacturing modeling work, this expanding team continues to work to integrate new suppliers with Zero-RFQ capabilities.
