Global automotive production ramp-up post COVID-19

Establishing the road to recovery

While the recovery stage is around the corner, and will last another six to nine months, it becomes equally imperative for leaders to prepare and position their companies to thrive in the future.

The automotive sector has weathered many predicaments over the past decade. This experience and resiliency have equipped the sector to overcome today’s unprecedented crisis brought by COVID-19 and the aim to return to a new “normal”.

This webinar focuses on how automotive suppliers and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) can leverage technology innovation and data analytics to address three key questions on the route to recovery.

  • How will companies prepare their workforce for a ramp-up?
  • How can manufacturers identify tier three and tier four suppliers who are at risk, financially and operationally?
  • How will demand for automotive evolve and look like in the future?

Deep dive on Deloitte capabilities

Deloitte’s “ready-to-deploy” solutions can help automotive suppliers and OEMs prepare to revive their operations and supply chains, and subsequently, bolster processes for growth.

  • Production ramp-up and workplace readiness:
    • Streamlines supply chains with limited manpower and raw material and track potential changes in demand and production. Deloitte’s fast-track production simulation model has been engineered to provide an overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) of 85% and operate with limited resources at 5x higher cycle time.
    • Enables thinking beyond the plant restart stage and focuses on holistic coverage of supply chain network to identify potential risk areas.
    • Monitors employee health via IoT based health management systems such as Deloitte’s “Restart Now”, to help companies plan workforce and trace the spread of infection.
  • Supplier network illumination and risk management:
    • Ensures visibility of downstream suppliers beyond tier one for assessing risks related to operational and financial, implementing effective mitigation strategies, and securing supply chains.
    • Helps understand inter-connectivity within the supplier network and allows auto manufacturers to gauge at-risk suppliers and how they can impact other elements of the value chain.
    • Uncovers competition in a multi-tier supplier network and how it can lead to tension in the value stream.
    • Tracks material flow across countries, flexes lead times, and helps build a responsive and resilient supply chain.
  • Demand sensing capabilities:
    • OEMs are leveraging demand sensing capabilities to capitalize on volume and mix opportunities to ramp-up in a supply-constrained environment.
    • Predicts shifts in customer demand patterns, behavior, macroeconomic indicators. 
    • Offers near-real time transaction data guidance, especially financial performance, by configuration and vehicle segment.
    • Allows manufacturers to streamline production plans and define wearable market incentives via inventory and ordering segmentation dashboards.
