Interstate-McBee Finds MRP Solution with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

Interstate-McBee Finds MRP Solution with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

Interstate-McBee, a manufacturer and distributer of replacement parts for Caterpillar®, Cummins®, Detroit Diesel®, and Navistar® engine applications, chose JD Edwards to navigate combining its manufacturing and distribution businesses

The Client

Interstate-McBee has the most comprehensive aftermarket product offering of replacement parts for Caterpillar®, Cummins®, Detroit Diesel®, and Navistar® engine applications. Interstate-McBee needed MRP after merging manufacturing and distribution companies. Interstate-McBee had an older ERP system for their distribution business called Prelude. Prelude is in its retirement phase and support was difficult to obtain. Interstate-McBee wanted to move to a best in class solution and chose Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.

The Challenge

Terillium provided project management as well as development and functional expertise. Interstate-McBee’s project leadership team needed a partner to help them approach and manage a large system implementation. Terillium implemented an ERP system that met Interstate-McBee’s business needs.

Interstate-McBee chose the new system to:

  • Automate what was previously a paper/manual EDI process
  • Provide new modern business reporting capabilities
  • Show real time visibility into orders and financial information
  • Include better insights and tools to do material planning

Our Solution

Interstate-McBee now has the following new business benefits:

  • Moved from a manual paper-based manufacturing system to automated manufacturing – leading to better inventory management and shop floor optimization among many other benefits
  • New ability to share information across multiple businesses – thanks to one global ERP system for the entire company
  • Better customer service including new modern processes to replace worn products for customers – with the new system this process is all managed within JDE as opposed to using spreadsheets
  • Better customer experience ordering online with a new state of the art online ordering system integrated with JDE
The implementation of JDE has given Interstate-McBee a robust platform to manage and control our manufacturing side of the business. The tools and information available in the system will allow us to better manage our distribution and manufacturing businesses. Terillium was an integral and key element in the successful launch of this system.
