OFTP2 & Beyond: Meeting the Compliance Challenge

Achieving Full Data Transparency to Pave the Way for Smooth OEM Relationships

Every few years, automotive manufacturers issue new technology and/or process mandates that send tremors through the supply chain. From the earliest days of automotive EDI to QS-9000 certification, just-in-time/just-in-sequence component delivery, barcode labels and more, automotive suppliers have had to comply with OEMs’ latest requirements or be prepared to exit the business.

The SEEBURGER EPX solution fulfills the requirements and supports the digital connected engineering with holistic and integrated data transfer to all partners e.g. OEMs, customers, suppliers and engineering service providers. EPX combines Managed File Transfer scenarios with process-driven data exchange according to industry standard VDA ENGDAT/ENGPART and ODETTE OFTP2 over one single web interface.
