The UK has long played a significant role in the global automotive sector. Today, the industry generates around £70 billion a year in revenue. Factories up and down the country are building everything from luxury saloons and sports cars to construction vehicles and aftermarket parts, with more than 3,000 companies employing 800,000 workers across all parts of the supply chain.

Manufacturers in the automotive sector, however, regularly face a number of unique challenges – many of which can get in the way of scheduling and planning efforts.

Fluctuating demand
Cars are significant purchases for most people; as the economy changes, so too do consumers’ buying habits. Trends also come and go, impacting demand for certain vehicle types.

Quality and safety standards
Products must adhere to stringent quality and safety requirements, as implemented by the government. Failure to do so can lead to reputation damage and lawsuits.

New technologies/expectations
The industry is evolving quickly, as are consumer expectations. We’re rapidly moving towards an age of super-efficient, connected and maybe even driverless cars. Manufacturers must be agile to keep up.

Efficiency requirements
As global competition intensifies, profit margins decrease and production efficiency becomes paramount. Manufacturers must be running at all times, with stoppages kept to an absolute minimum.
