The automotive parts industry is diverse with high production volumes in addition to tight deadlines.
Tier one and tier two suppliers often have tight deadlines specified by the OEM (automobile company) who are typically more focused on assembly of the final parts than they are on manufacturing each part.
As a result, tier one and tier two suppliers often need a production scheduling solution that is linked to data coming from a separate ERP system, integrated with the design requirements, can do what-if planning, can trace component parts, can plan for inspection stages and assist with regulatory compliance requirements.
Invariably the manufacturing process for automotive parts manufacturers is unique and requires a production scheduling software solution to be “tailored” to their specific needs. This is one key reason automotive parts manufacturers are using Taylor APS.
As one customer said “If you can describe your process, Taylor APS can model it.”
