Global Supplier Data Network Connectivity

The challenge this committee will face is to map out the global supplier connectivity landscape based upon business practices; identify candidate standards and technologies for increased homogenization; and provide a fact-based evaluation of available connectivity and data communication alternatives. The objectives of the Supplier Connectivity project are to:

  • Identify existing and emerging telecommunication and network options with their associated performance-related value propositions
  • Verify and summarize current Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) business process connectivity requirements and specifications
  • Cross-reference OEM business process requirements to current technology implementations
This project will demonstrate how the automotive supply chain exchanges data in a competitive global economy. The resulting informational documents and recommendations will help OEMs, as well as suppliers of all sizes, make better choices for themselves and their partners.Download Flyer
