Operational Restart Readiness
for the Automotive Supply Chain
Are you really ready to start operations again?
The global automotive industry has never faced an unplanned shutdown (complete or partial) like that which has stemmed from COVID-19. Unprecedented times call for unprecedented actions. The current situation differs significantly from planned automotive plant shutdowns for example, for model changes. Automotive suppliers, especially Tier 2 and Tier 3 manufacturers may find their normal plant restart routines inadequate when attempting to ensure fulfillment of product quality and delivery requirements for their customers.
This 13-point checklist highlights the key areas to consider from an operational perspective for risks in the restart of your automotive manufacturing operations.
It’s hard to know what the new normal will look like, but suppliers must evaluate their organization’s potential risk areas related to the restart of operations and planning actions to address these risks. This checklist can also demonstrate to your customers and other interested parties how your organization is managing the restart of your operations.
