Become more nimble, resilient, and cost-effective in the way you plan and operate your automotive supply chain.
Just-in-time inventory management and offshoring to low-cost producers are not viable auto manufacturing solutions.
Supply chains are now multi-tiered, and automotive manufacturers have no visibility past their tier-1 suppliers.
External factors that impact lead times and commitments are becoming increasingly more costly and unpredictable.
Give auto manufacturers the ability to seamlessly connect and collaborate with multi-tiered suppliers through supply and demand synchronization, real-time product movement monitoring, capacity constraint confirmations, and supply risk assessments.
Reduce the bullwhip effect across auto supply tiers by planning the right quantities and communicating with suppliers. Eliminate overstocking and obsolescence, removing bottlenecks between the various supply chain tiers.
Identify the risks and constraints in an auto manufacturer's supply base, enabling them to plan supplier capacity and prepare their supply chain for volume upturn and downturn. Prioritize efforts, draft action plans and start mitigation tactics.
“Having the OEM demand visibility not filtered by Tier-1 buying strategy or buffer allows us to smooth out our production planning and avoid the bullwhip effect.”
