Challenges in Automotive
Technological evolution and uncertainty (diesel, petrol, electric…) on the one hand requires higher R&D budgets, which on the other hand makes the sector extremely cost and cash sensitive. Therefore, companies in the automotive sector mainly face challenges to increase productivity, improve quality, ensure traceability in the supply chain, and comply with all kinds of regulations. To respond optimally to this, these companies must be able to properly manage all elements on and around the production floor. Think of the production process, the import and export of goods, the material used, the personnel… The most common challenges in the automotive industry include:
- Ergonomics and user-friendliness. The equipment must make performing various operations easy, durable and user-friendly.
- A well thought-out service plan to guarantee continuity. This is necessary in a sector where many just-in-time deliveries take place.
- Communication. Challenging industrial environments can hamper or cause disruption to mobile communications.
Our Auto-ID solutions offer the possibility to monitor and optimize the production and distribution processes, and they also reduce the margin of error.
