Opportunities for optimization in the tire manufacturing industry
Author: Levent Özkan

In my role as Pre-Sales Director for Asia Pacific, I have had the chance to speak with supply chain executives across various industries. I have listened to their stories and learned about the challenges they face and the capabilities they need to succeed.

In every industry, I see opportunities for immense improvements of processes, performance, and profits through mathematical optimization solutions – and an ever-increasing number of supply chain companies are investing in such solutions.

One industry where I see many amazing opportunities for optimization is the tire manufacturing industry.

Tire manufacturing is a well established, but highly complex and competitive industry – and there are many big bumps and perilous potholes on the road to profitability.

To survive and stay ahead of the competition, tire manufacturers must be able to maximize on time, in full (OTIF) delivery for customers while minimizing inventory and costs. This is no easy task – and is practically impossible using (as most tire manufacturers do) manual planning techniques and tools like Excel.

Keeping production operations rolling along smoothly and customers happy requires supply chain synchronization and optimization; effective material and inventory management; cross-functional collaboration in planning and operations, and superior capacity utilization.

Integrated, automated supply chain optimization solutions can help tire manufacturers achieve these goals, by enabling them to optimize their planning, decision making, and execution across various areas.

Supply chain management tools can help tire manufacturers to resolve bottlenecks and keep supply and demand in balance. However, supply chain optimization software solutions can go beyond this by giving planners and other key stakeholders the capability to create the best possible plans and make the best possible decisions to reach their business goals.

I see many opportunities for optimization in tire manufacturing operations including:

These are merely a few of the many opportunities for optimization that I see in the tire manufacturing industry. There are many others, including demand planning and order promising optimization, bill of materials (BOM) optimization, and workforce optimization. The opportunities are essentially endless…

More and more tire manufacturing companies are discovering that supply chain optimization software solutions can pave the way to greater productivity and profitability.
