In progressively scattered but globally networked automotive enterprises, maintain their supply chain costs to assure the least landed cost of procured direct parts & indirect materials would be an area of topmost priority for various automakers as they struggle with a sluggish economy and intensifying competition. Increased supply chain volume, greater demand volatility, shorter product life cycles, and growth of global sourcing are posing new challenges to supply chain coordination.
Procurement planning and forecasting are expected to become more dynamic, responsive, and data driven with lot more real times / near real time co-ordination with multitude of external partners. Controlling the extended supply chain and taking immediate corrective actions, whenever and wherever needed, will require comprehensive supply chain visibility mechanisms to be built.
