Case Studies

Tier-1 Automotive Parts Manufacturer

  • Background: The client was experiencing supply shortages in key raw materials, leading to production shutdowns and disruptions as well as an inability to fulfill customer requirements. The COVID-19 pandemic caused demand disruptions and longer than historical lead times for raw materials and component parts, which caused the client to stock-out and short customer orders.
  • Solution: GEP took an E2E approach to rapidly map the key supply chain processes and substantiated gaps across supply surety, operational effectiveness, planning effectiveness, inventory management, and commercial management that were causing the supply shortages. GEP identified and defined solution opportunities, and the client realized financial and operational business benefits worth $7 million to $12 million in annual value in one sub-business.
