At our EXPO Days we always try to answer some of the most challenging questions our corporate partners are currently facing. The circumstances of the last 6 months have uncovered essential flaws in the way supply chains have worked over the last years: The outsourcing of every aspect of the supply chain, just-in-time deliveries and precarious conditions in countries along the production process proved to be unstable mechanisms to keep the operations smoothly ongoing in times of crisis. Due to the complexity of their vehicles, flawless processes along the supply chain are especially important for manufactures in the mobility industry. For this reason, already before the crisis many major industry players became early innovators and constructed Smart Factories to be more adaptable towards supply chain risks in general. With the possibility to produce more and more (vehicle) parts of the process in one location and with the challenges of a globalized production approach becoming more evident, this topic is highly relevant for all players in all kinds of industries.
