Essential Characteristics in an Automotive Supply Chain Model

6 Sep

Global Consulting Services and Software Development, known to clients as GCS or GCSSD, with headquarters in the United States and an office in Cairo, Egypt, focuses on assisting major automotive firms such as Nissan North America, Toyota, Hyundai, and VW in designing software applications and utilizing their data and supply-chain systems. From their office in Egypt, the GCS engineers know that to create an optimal supply chain, their models should include several characteristics.

A solid supply chain for automotive purposes should first be instrumented. This means each area of the supply chain should incorporate some form of sensor or feedback device so that the entire system can be monitored and feedback gathered to identify problem spots or to locate areas where efficiency can be improved.

Second, an interconnected supply chain will allow executives to view cause and effect. When taken as one complete process, instead of fragmented segments, a bigger picture is drawn that tells a fuller story.

Finally, using advanced metrics and mathematical analysis allows for an intelligent supply chain that delivers sophisticated data reports to allow executives to make the best and most informed decisions.
