Skelta BPM for the Automotive Sector
Industries > Automotive

Automotive manufacturing is an extremely competitive industry with global players outsourcing parts manufacturing and assembling to various locations worldwide. Key factors to success include:

  • Staggering the manufacturing process to shorten lead times and meet customer demands
  • Manage distribution channels efficiently to achieve top and bottom line targets

More than any other industry, automotive manufacturing also relies heavily on the dealership model. With so many disparate points of sale, assembly and service, companies need to ensure an integrated approach to business process management for a streamlined working model.

Key Challenges:

  • Product Lifecycle Management including logistics, quality control and order management areas need to be linked for business monitoring and MIS
