TECHNOLOGY IS JUST THE BEGINNING
To adapt to current and future market changes – such as standardization, the rising price of raw materials, and the growth of emerging markets – OEMs and automotive interior and seating suppliers need to develop resilient and agile supply chains while finding opportunities for improvement throughout their operations. Process optimization, continuous performance improvement and sustainable results are fundamentals of lean methodology that Lectra applies to its integrated cutting room, enabling companies to stay one step ahead on the road to operational excellence.
