BUS 631 Week 1 DQ 1 Supply Chain Forecasting

Short description

Supply Chain Forecasting Discuss how forecasting effects the supply chain of an automobile manufacturer. Consider especially the forecasting and supply chains involved in manufacturing a new model (entirely new, not an edition/annual change). How do the individual supply chains for the subparts effect the larger supply chain of the whole automobile. How does forecasting effect the just-in-time or lean production system used in most automobile manufacturing plants? Respond to at least two of your classmates' postings. Example of a typical automobile supply chain: • Suppliers for raw materials • Suppliers for parts and subsystems • Automobile manufacturer (Ford, in the example). Within a company, there are also different departments, which constitute the internal supply chain: • Purchasing and material handling • Manufacturing • Marketing, etc. • Transportation providers • Automobile dealers
