Tire Production

CHALLENGES

For tire manufacturers, the road to profitability is a rough and bumpy one. To deliver high-performance products and service excellence for consumers as well as value to stakeholders, tire producers must be able to overcome many obstacles including rising costs, competition, customer expectations, and supply chain complexity.

Old-fashioned, manual planning methods are not capable of coping with this complexity, as they fail to take into account sudden shifts in market conditions, disruptions, and changes in production capacity, customer priorities, and materials supply. Lacking visibility and control over their supply chain networks, planners using manual systems are often compelled to hold more raw materials and inventory than they need – and this can weigh heavily on the bottom line.

Achieving supply chain efficiency and flexibility is critical to slashing costs and excess inventory and boosting utilization and customer service levels. To attain supply chain excellence, tire companies must be equipped with automated planning and decision-support tools that enable them to visualize, synchronize, and optimize their end-to-end operations and keep supply and demand in perfect balance.
