Efficiently meet aggressive customer demands.
With hundreds of new automotive models scheduled to come down assembly lines over the next decade, manufacturers from OEMs through the lowest tier suppliers are struggling to streamline production and speed up new launches so they can keep up with demand.
With CloudSuite Automotive, you can boost productivity across your entire enterprise, from the top floor to the shop floor, so you meet and exceed high-volume production schedules while maintaining high efficiency and quality.
Manage complex product and program launches.
The introduction of high-tech and electronics components and systems into more and more parts of the standard motor vehicle adds a new level of complexity to manufacturing. That complexity, combined with increased requirements for configuration, requires technological capabilities beyond traditional “nuts and bolts” design and manufacturing approaches.
CloudSuite Automotive includes capabilities like support for 3-D printing,upply chain collaboration and end-to-end quality management to help manage high-tech and electronics integration and meet the needs of more complex parts and modules.
Plan and forecast better – and faster.
As globalization escalates, many locations are at risk for overcapacity. At the same time, manufacturers face workforce skill shortages and projected bottlenecks within certain portions of the supply chain.
CloudSuite Automotive helps you anticipate how these trends will impact your business, so you can stay ahead of them. The solution suite combines complete business visibility with timely reporting that improves the accuracy and timeliness of planning and forecasting.
Reduce cost of quality.
Quality is a given. But to be competitive, you must focus not only on meeting quality requirements, but also on doing so at the lowest possible cost. Those OEMs and suppliers that can achieve quality while minimizing costs will be in the best position to take full advantage of evolving market opportunities.
CloudSuite Automotive helps you comply with TS16949 and other requirements while also allowing you to manage the factors that can drive up costs. You’ll be able to streamline APQP and PPAPs, efficiently manage engineering changes, reduce waste and rework, minimize warranty claims and associated costs, and quickly identify root causes of failures to isolate affected parts and avoid larger impacts.
Business growth is only profitable if it’s balanced with increased inventory turns, streamlined processes, efficiency gains, and other operational cost savings.
CloudSuite Automotive delivers a one-two punch. It drives bottom-line savings and top-line growth.
