JDA Software - Real Results Summer 2013 - Navigating Change

  1. 1. Copyright 2013 JDA Software Group, Inc. - CONFIDENTIAL Navigating Change 1 Today’s savvy consumers not only expect high quality and longer vehicle life, but they also want style, performance, comfort and value. As consumers become less brand loyal and more impatient, automakers and their suppliers have been forced to redesign their supply chains, relying less on outsourced manufacturing in favor of insourcing and consolidations. Read: Navigating Change Specifically, they recognize that they need an integrated supply chain strategy that will enable them to: • Better sense and forecast ever-changing global consumer demand by region, product category and business segment • Design manufacturing and distribution networks that can rapidly and profitably respond to changing consumer demand • Synchronize global capacity across internal production facilities, joint ventures and external suppliers • Re-energize aftermarket segments to improve margins and customer service Meet the Authors: Ehap Sabri, PhD, CFPIM, LSSMBB is a strategy consulting director with JDA Software and serves as a visiting professor with the University of Texas at Dallas. Salim Shaikh, CPIM, CSCP is a senior solution advisor at JDA Software and a guest speaker at the University of Texas at Dallas.
