The ability to deliver the right product, to the right place, at the right time is critical to automotive companies and can be a key competitive differentiator. Capgemini has developed an order-to-delivery framework that can make the difference.
Transform Your Order-to-Delivery for Success
Many automotive companies are finding it increasingly difficult to fulfill their commitments to their customers and suppliers. They are also aware that their order-to-delivery processes have cost disadvantages compared to those of competitors.
Transforming the order-to-delivery process presents a solution. Capgemini's order-to-delivery framework provides a starting point from which to drive process models quickly, as well as information technology requirements and solution architectures. This framework encompasses:
- Product definition/PLM and planning and forecasting
- Product offering and revenue management
- Demand sensing and order management/scheduling
- Supplier-oriented functions like material supply chain, factory and logistics
From Strategy to Tactics
Capgemini's approach to order-to-delivery transformation focuses on both strategic and tactical streams.
Our strategic transformation activities cover:
- Solutions/technical architecture
- Business process, practice and policy
- Strategic organizational change management
- Data management
These tactical transformation activities have the potential to deliver immediate gains and benefits, including:
- Process validation pilots/quick wins
- 6 Sigma
- Focused organizational change management
