Automotive: for Suppliers
A unified approach to supply chain engagement while collaborating with OEMs and suppliers.
Automotive suppliers face new and pressing challenges: globalization, risk aversion, a hyper-connected and cloud-based world, intense competition, an eroding supply base, increased cost of raw materials and labor, pressure with OEM cost-down initiatives and more. Success is no longer guaranteed by relationships, brand recognition or the size of an organization. To prosper in the future, Suppliers will need to find a way to increase their value and engagement with the OEM.
Suppliers have all invested heavily in building supply chain management systems, ERP infrastructure and other necessary systems over time. They have implemented the hardware, software, protocols and standards necessary to monitor internal information and communication with OEMs and other parties as well. Updating these systems is necessary as systems evolve but replacing existing infrastructure is time consuming and cost prohibitive.
