Coping with Increasing Requirements
Immense cost pressure continues to earmark the automotive industry supply sector. This is first and foremost due to the aggressive price policy of the OEMs and new market players from India, China and Eastern Europe are also contributing to this pressure.
At the same time, the quality and productivity requirements expected by the customer are increasingly demanding: If product quality begins to suffer or the logistics chain is broken, the suppliers have to reckon with harsh consequences. Legal requirements also increase liability risks.
Increasingly shorter development times put suppliers under permanent pressure of innovation, while at the same time, product complexity continues to increase and variety expands.
With continuous Process Optimization the supplier industry can achieve its rationalization and cost-saving potentials and absorb cost pressure. This urgently requires continuous quality improvements: Suppliers must be able to analyze their production processes step-by-step, quickly recognize defects and eliminate the causes. A prerequisite here: production process documentation must be consistent and not only comply with legal guidelines but also with the requirements of the OEMs. In this way complaint costs and liability risks can be kept to a minimum.
