Seven Must Have Reports when Sequencing Automotive Parts

Sequencing automotive parts consistof real-time communication with the customer and suppliers, building products in a set order, and shipping quality products on time. Because of the nature of JIT manufacturing, it is critical for manufacturers to have real-time reports of their sequencing processes.  

As the need for visibility is so important, we thought we’d share some reports our clients are using today to keep the flow of real-time information visible and ensure their production goals are met.

What is Lean manufacturing? Lean manufacturing or lean production, is a systematic method for waste minimization within a manufacturing system without sacrificing productivity. To be a lean manufacturer, you need an agile manufacturing execution system (MES) that adapts to the manufacturing processes and provides monitoring and control functions to efficiently produce quality product in a non-intrusive manner.

In a typical manufacturing scenario, after a manufacturer receives a Quality Alert, the supplier is then required to construct and follow a remediation plan to avoid the described defects in all future deliveries.
