Webinar: Gain a Competitive Edge as an Automotive Supplier with Advanced Planning and Scheduling
OEM’s, Tier I and Tier II Automotive manufacturing strategies are changing:
- There’s a strong possibility that the structure of the industry could change, with automakers dis-integrating more of the vehicle’s component manufacturing or specializing in vehicle categories making the adoption of flexible manufacturing systems inevitable.
- Automotive component manufacturers are exploring manufacturing operations technology adoption to improve returns of capital.
- The high-host of capital is leading Tier I and Tier II manufacturers to focus on strategic cost reductions by increasing asset and resource utilization.
Automotive manufacturers also face technological obstacles while meeting these goals. Industry experts have observed the following common challenges:
- Many auto suppliers have challenges in Synchronizing Demand Signals with Manufacturing Execution.
- Although Lean Manufacturing Principles have been existent in factories, technologies that sustain lean processes and documentation are yet to be realized.
- Uncertain demand from customers is creating more pressure on auto suppliers to supply on-time with effective asset and resource utilization.
- Companies with ERP still have Production Scheduling done on disparate systemslike spreadsheets, often leading to wasted effort and rework.
- Over 1/2 of the top performing companies are not able to quickly respond to customer demand changes accurately or even predict the impact of the changes on capacity utilization.
Do any of these challenges apply to your company?
To get a jumpstart on your competition, view “Gain a Competitive Edge as an Automotive Supplier with Advanced Planning and Scheduling” Webinar where Dave Snyder, Siemens MOM Channel Manager, and Nikhil Joshi, Founder & Director, SNic Solutions, a well-known Advanced Planning and Scheduling Subject Matter Expert will share the best practices adopted for production planning and scheduling by automotive suppliers.
