Tracking every part

As Covid-19 swept the globe in early 2020, factories were shuttered and freight flows disrupted, affecting globally linked automotive supply chains. But while shutdowns brought the industry to a standstill, ramping production back up proved even more challenging. 

Supply chain visibility has become increasingly key in helping manufacturers identify non-availability of parts and make decisions about alternative supply, expedited shipments and changes to production schedules. 

With ongoing uncertainty, the industry will face this ‘new never normal’ for the foreseeable future. Manufacturers will need more visibility in real time, including material stock and inventory tracking at suppliers and assembly plants to minimize disruption, reduce waste and emissions. To achieve visibility at scale, manufacturers must automate part and inventory identification, and ensure data is seamlessly connected across the supply chain.
