Adapting to Changing Consumer Demands with a Flexible Supply Chain in Manufacturing Industry

flexible supply chain in Manufacturing Industry


Every year automotive companies release new cars that are more advanced in terms of design, machinery, and technology. Each one is better than the last. As time evolves, vehicles become more and more sleek and aerodynamic, varied, and technologically improved. Years ago, car types and models are not as varied as today. Technological features inside the car are also not as much as today. Automotive companies have to acquire flexibility in order to achieve the advancements.


The needs of customers change every time, so therefore to fulfill the needs of the customer, the automotive industry has to have the ability to adapt to the changing needs of the customer. If companies are unable to cope with the customer’s demands and are inflexible sooner or later the company is going to experience stagnancy or regression, even bankruptcy. However, following the customer’s demands come with their own set of challenges as the demands affect how the vehicle is going to be produced.


The automotive company may experience difficulties when they try to adapt to fulfill the changing needs of customers. One of them is the complex designing process to the manufacturing process of the vehicle. How to translate the design properly into a prototype and enable the prototype to be mass-produced. The way engineers fit the spare parts and machines of the vehicle into the body of the car no matter how small or how complicated. If along the way the design has to be restarted after trials and errors, will that cause the release date to be pushed back? With the release date being pushed back, it will surely generate money loss which is what most companies avoid


What if there is a software that could relieve the pains stated above while streamlining the workflow and control it at the same time? ERP enables a company to synchronize systems inside the company and streamlining processes in the company. The implementing ERP in the company will result in an increase in efficiency and productivity because all information is shared and work progress would be tracked easily.
