The automotive industry is shifting gears. As a highly dynamic and interactive business, the industry is rapidly spinning towards technological advancements, inviting new operational disruptions and increasing consumer expectations. As a major industrial and economic force worldwide, the automotive sector has been a trendsetter from the days of the first assembly line put in motion by Henry Ford. The technology adopted by this segment is inherently followed on by other verticals sooner or later.

With the changing dynamics, automotive manufacturers and suppliers have to expedite consistently in order to make the production process more efficient, faster, cheaper and resistant to any problems. This is where LEAN Transformation comes into practice to match the transition in all the aspects of decision-making from operations, and product design to production, sales and marketing

Challenges faced by the Automotive industry

  1. Changing societal trends
  2. Sales slowdown
  3. Shifting trends
  4. Rising commodity costs
  5. Production shutdowns
  6. Supply chain disruptions

How SK Banerji drives change in the automotive world

Mr. Banerji in his journey in India’s leading automotive company has worked in various capacities ranging from production, maintenance to material handling. He helped improve the value stream stability within the organisation while extensively extending the benefits to the entire value chain of supplies. He played an instrumental role in deploying the country’s first e-Nagare system to reduce inventory and timely delivery. 

Navigating through a confluence of challenges, SK Banerji brings in an alternative strategy – LEAN MANAGEMENT – to establish continuous improvement in the business. This is carried out by identifying the company’s value stream and then systematically removing all waste.
