Automotive Industry – supply chalenges. The Supply chain in Automotive industry today is highly affected by crisis of lack of microchips from Asia and production closing of suppliers in Ukraine due to the war. It has generated production stop or volume reduction at OEMs (car makers). Consequently, the orders from OEMs to all their suppliers are significantly reduced in first half of 2022 with emphasized fluctuation in short time period.
The production plan at supplier site must be adjusted constantly after every change in customer orders (postpone of delivery or reduced quantity in delivery schedule). It reflects to material planning and adjustment of orders from Tier one suppliers to sub suppliers.
