OEMs demand flawless program launches. To be successful in today’s marketplace, automotive suppliers must be able to interact with and manage multiple customers, partners and programs while making certain that each program launches flawlessly. Failure to meet quality, performance, cost and timing requirements is not an option. Automotive suppliers must collaborate effectively in all stages of a program to avoid absorbing costs associated with fixing last-minute launch or warranty problems. This requirement becomes especially important as you are faced with managing an ever-increasing number of programs.
Change is a way of life in the automotive industry. The supplier’s challenge is to manage change in such a way that every change is quoted quickly and accurately – and with a level of traceability that mitigates risk without crippling innovation. To ensure program profitability, the automotive supplier’s own supply chain can be crucial to delivering accurate request for quote (RFQ) responses to customers.
Workplace attrition can place any company’s intellectual assets in jeopardy. Automotive suppliers are challenged to capture and protect their company’s collective knowledge gleaned from experience and practice. This knowledge must be made available to the rest of the organization so it can be re-used on new products, new programs and new customers.
