Oliver Reisch of flexis AG held a presentation on Global Supply Chain Challenges in the Automotive Sector in the lecture Inventory Management. He motivated the need for global and integrated planning approaches by the change from local to global sourcing, the significantly increasing variability of finished cars and the growing market volatility during the last decade in the automotive industry. He showed that due to lead times of 20-30 days in the supply process the focus in Production Planning moves from local plants to a corporate perspective.  He furthermore mentioned the necessity of rule based Bill of Materials and gave an insight on how to compete with all these challenges through the use of holistic and integrated software solutions. Interested in more details? Contact Prof. Dr. Stefan Minner or Dipl.-Inf.
