Supply chain organizations within the automotive supplier industry contribute to manufacturing excellence in many ways, including quality, cost and delivery, to their OEM and subsystem customer base.
Focused on outcomes, a competitive supply chain capability not only assures the ontime delivery of component material, but also the execution of inbound supply to ensure the shipment of quality finished goods at a competitive price while delivering on-target margins for the manufacturers.
In order to accomplish these goals, continuous improvement in global supply chain execution becomes a core supply capability required by most automotive OEM’s today.
Strategies around lean replenishment and logistics must be deployed to accomplish performance goals, many of which may be required to remain in good standing. Executing these strategies requires manufacturer’s to fully leverage the potential of today’s innovative network-based supply chain systems and processes.
Today it is possible to fully engage the knowledge and capabilities of an extended enterprise across their supply chain in real time. This evolving network-based capability provides the potential to drive significant improvements in overall replenishment performance and cost goals.
This white paper looks at these problems, uncovers the cause, and shows how this problem can be solved to unlock the full potential of your supply chain.
