Technology’s Key Role in Automotive Manufacturing and Services Lifecycle

Since its beginning over 100 years ago the automotive
has known many challenges, it has weathered the challenges and
continues to grow and flourish today.  Automotive manufacturers and their
value chains have faced financial, supply, labor and quality issues.
Market conditions resulting from intense competition for customers,
macroeconomic challenges, energy volatility, regulation and the pace of
technology have kept the industry in a state of risk “and” opportunity.

But despite all of that the industry remains a very
straightforward and simple proposition…

It centers on three main themes:

  • Rapidly bring high quality innovative vehicles
    and services that customers demand to market,
  • Source materials and manufacture those desired
    vehicles efficiently and cost effectively with minimal risk of disruption from
    outside factors, and…
  • Sell and service those vehicles profitably while
    continuously improving customer satisfaction and market share.


SAP will host its national Customer Value Network event in
Chicago on June 25 and June 26, 2013.  During the two days of the event
there will be over 55 sessions delivered by both SAP and customers focusing on
those primary automotive themes with specific attention paid to strategy, best
practices, business value maximization and lessons learned. 

  • For vehicle innovation and design, join SAP and
    its customers for in-depth coverage of Product Lifecycle Management, 3D
    Visualization and collaboration and product safety and compliance. 
  • Manufacturing
    and sourcing topics will include Manufacturing Execution, Manufacturing
    Integration and Intelligence, Sourcing and Procurement, Spend Analytics, Global
    Batch Traceability and Asset Management. Significant focus will be on SAP HANA
    manufacturing uses cases.
  • The Sales and service processes will feature
    customer and SAP sessions on Warranty Analytics, Service Parts Management
    transformation and Dealer Interaction and Support.


Take advantage of this opportunity to learn about SAP
solutions and to interact with companies who are already reaping the benefits
of SAP solutions across these automotive process areas!
