Cross-Organizational Data Sharing in the Auto Supply Chain Reduces Defects
For years, semiconductor manufacturers have leveraged manufacturing data throughout their globally-dispersed supply chains to improve quality and reduce return material authorizations (RMAs). Automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers are now working to meet the similar challenge of reducing defective parts per million (DPPM) and beyond in vehicle production. The ability to share and connect data backwards and forwards throughout the supply chain is now seen as a key capability to address this challenge. How can sharing data throughout the automotive supply chain reduce DPPM?
