Automotive Procurement-Steps to Ensure Smooth Functioning of the Process

Being the most innovative sector, intensive competition is at the core of the automotive industry. It would not be wrong to say that the success of both the manufacturers and the suppliers is solely dependent on their collaborative behaviour against the customer’s need. Automated processes and in-time and in-sequence supply is extremely crucial for the survival of market.

Lately, the automotive industry is facing the brunt of rising costs of production, increased transportation costs and the hassles of finding a reliable transporting service. These factors have put them under increasing pressure of procuring quality raw materials and products at the lowest prices to keep their balance sheet in the track. There is a chain of events that are involved in automotive procurement like planning, managing, and executing purchases of products. These have to be smartly combined with factors like scheduling of payment and mitigating risk elements.

Some of the steps that successful companies should take to achieve consistency in their automotive procurement process are the following-

  • Maintain a centralised, fully integrated procurement department.
  • Focus on establishing long-term relationships with suppliers.
  • Devise procurement strategies by using cross-functional teams.
  • Adopt a comprehensive approach that is not price focused, is followed while considering the economics of procurement.

This is how a fully integrated procurement team can help in the smooth management of every process of automotive procurement.
