Improve your control of manufacturing and supply chain processes

Beat the changes with YMTY – before the changes beat you

YMTY stands for “Your MOM Told You”, in which MOM is Manufacturing Operations Management

YMTY is a business analysis software product based on supply chain and manufacturing industry standards which will enrich your MOM by visualizing the interdependencies between activities across your organisation.

Manufacturing and supply chain processes are complex. Just maintaining a detailed and up-to-date record of your processes, business rules and interdependencies is often a challenge in itself. Add to that the changing nature of market demand and legislation, and you could easily spend more time on process analysis and impact assessments than on running the daily operations. Accurate impact assessments of changes are critical, yet time consuming and complex. Speeding up the process often results in inadequate insight and being thorough takes far too long. Both often result in a high cost of failure due to stand stills, rework, non-compliance, loss of sales, inventory turnover and other disruptions.

What you need is the ability to quickly and thoroughly assess the impact of changes throughout your entire manufacturing and supply chain operations. See which elements are affected and what needs to be done to implement the required changes. Our YMTY solution will help you do exactly this…all of this.

The challenge

Changes in product requirements, processes, legislation and IT systems occur frequently. Organisations need to respond to these changes and implement adequate solutions to ensure continuity.

But how effective are organisations in doing this? In more than 25 years of experience in manufacturing and supply chain, we have seen:

  • Over 60% of projects exceeding budget
  • More than 30% of projects exceeding the initial delivery date
  • Approximately 15% of projects posing a threat for business continuity
  • All leading to rising costs of failure due to production delays and poor quality results

Our delivery

USoft’s proprietary YMTY software will help your organisation to achieve exactly that level of insight which you need and the ability to quickly and thoroughly perform impact assessments on expected changes.

The result are impressive:

  • Reduce your time spent on impact assessments by up to 25%
  • Improve the quality of your requirements by up to 50%
  • Benefit from industry standards and apply them with ease to your organisation
  • Ensure legislative compliance with strong traceability
  • Reduce your cost of failure by up to 20%

Our experience shows that effectively assessing the impact of changes often proves to be difficult as activities, business rules, processes, information flows and supporting systems have not been recorded in a complete and consistent manner thus making an accurate and efficient impact assessment virtually impossible.

What would help is a single point of truth that provides immediate and detailed insight into the interdependencies of information across departments and functions.

What YMTY is

The software engine used by YMTY is URequire Studio, the USoft solution for capturing and managing requirements rigorously and more consistently.

To ensure correctness and completeness in your requirements, we have pre-loaded YMTY with all the definitions, interdependencies and best practices from manufacturing and supply chain industry standards. This enables a quick start and provides an in-depth insight out of the box. Adding content that is specific to your organisation is easily done, enriching YMTV even further. Interdependencies are instantly visible on your screen while working with YMTY and because it is in plain written language, it is easily understood across multiple business areas in your organisation. YMTY furthermore provides feedback on the consistency of your requirements, helping you in being complete, clear and unambiguous.
