How RFID Enables Better Supply Chain Visibility in the Automotive Industry

Supply chain visibility has become increasingly key in helping manufacturers identify nonavailability of parts and make decisions about alternative supply, expedited shipments and changes to production schedules. For example, manufacturers have prioritized vehicles and configurations based on what parts they know are available.

With ongoing uncertainty, the industry will face this ‘new never normal’ for the foreseeable future. Manufacturers will need more visibility in real time, including material stock and inventory tracking at suppliers and assembly plants to minimize disruption, reduce waste and emissions.

This invaluable white paper from Turck, a leader in automation and visibility solutions for manufacturing, explains how automakers can move beyond manual barcode scanning and implement RFID to achieve the visibility, controls and efficiencies they need.
