Transforming the automotive industry supply chain

Political and economic events during and after the pandemic, rapid regulatory change, new customer expectations of an omnichannel purchasing experience…disruptors like these, along with changes to the automotive business itself, are leading to a radical reappraisal of automotive supply chain processes.

Like several leading OEMs, Capgemini strongly believes that automakers can obtain valuable competitive advantage by building a resilient, connected, intelligent and sustainable supply chain, and our new “point of view” explains how automakers can achieve this competitive advantage.

We reveal several levers that can be used to transform the automotive supply chain, which include evolution of the supplier ecosystem, stronger orchestration and governance, and new approaches to talent management. Crucially, with today’s technology, an extra layer of software can readily be introduced to add intelligence to the organization through data-enabled decision-making.

We also recommend a four-step approach that automakers can adopt to redefine supply chain resilience in the short term:

Rethink the approach to planning
Embrace transparent collaboration
Get help with innovation
Build a data-driven culture
