The automotive sector has felt the effects of globalization the most: the ratio between supply and demand has increased exponentially. For this very reason, it is necessary for businesses to manage their supply in a transparent way. There are 35,000 components required to produce a car, and every single one of these components plays a key role. The various parts have to be there at exactly the right moment and in exactly the right quantity for the production process to work.
One missing item could compromise the entire production process. For businesses in the automotive sector, one of the most important strategies for optimizing the management of their materials is to analyze and understand the demand. Indeed, the ability to reliably forecast demand enables businesses to optimize stock management, as well as to improve levels of customer service and reduce overall running costs.
At the same time, it’s important to distinguish between what the demand planning process indicates is necessary and what the organization is actually capable of producing.
That’s where GIB comes into play, with its data analysis software that allows you to create accurate production forecasts.
With GIB Suite, you can process every type of production order within a single centralized solution, which enables you to consider the relationships and constraints related to individual capacities.
What’s more, GIB Suite has a Production Planning & Scheduling module to help maximize throughput and minimize downtime.
