The Automotive industry is one of the first truly global industries with a supply chain that has grown with manufacturers. However, this industry is now troubled with expanding competition, increasing risk and high costs. Increased globalization including global climate change has increased pressure on advances in technology pushing costs up throughout the supply chain. With the industry’s primary success factor tied to quality, the supply chain is a critical measurement to the Automotive industry.
As Tier suppliers struggle with capacity, quality and capabilities, supplier consolidation continues to rise. With the increased complexity and technology requirements, visibility and transparency become a necessary requirement to meet the direction. But supplier consolidation comes with risks of decreasing diversity, defective parts and higher costs.
Tier 1 suppliers are expected to establish new locations near manufacturer sites for integrated collaboration and processes. The trend towards modular components, advanced technology, shorter product lifecycles and qualified technical workforce in the industry significantly impacts all areas of the supply chain.
