Automotive Supplier Excellence Australia
ASEA Project
9
Automotive Supplier Excellence Australia Project
  • Aims
  • To establish a competitive future state for the
    Australian Automotive Industry, based on a
    thorough scan of the short- long-term, national
    and global horizons.
  • To develop a flexible, robust strategic pathway
    to create this future state, mapping the industry
    position for the short-, medium- long-term
    future.
  • Primary Deliverables
  • An Industry Roadmap based on local and global
    needs
  • A supply-base assessment
  • Targeted supply base (and chain) interventions
  • Involvement
  • MVPs (Holden, Ford, Toyota Mitsubishi) ,
    Suppliers (ACPs), Government, AutoCRC (Research
    Providers) Specialist Resources

10
ASEA - Project Overview
  • Three primary project stages
  • Industry Roadmapping Alternative Futures
    Strategic Planning
  • Supplier Evaluation Assessment Global
    Benchmarking
  • Intervention Development Implement Industry
    Roadmap based on Supplier Evaluation

11
Stage 1 Industry Roadmapping
Identify potential futures for the industry and
strategies/ initiatives to encourage favourable
futures and discourage unfavourable ones
Where does the industry need to be?
  • Objectives
  • Develop an overall sector roadmap for the
    Australian automotive supply base
  • Develop a number of priority area roadmaps based
    on the top-level roadmap
  • Outcomes
  • Identify critical business drivers, key
    competitive areas and key markets for the auto
    industry, now and to 2015
  • Develop a strategic vision for the auto industry
    going forward
  • Initiate processes and actions to strengthen the
    Australian automotive industry as a whole

12
Roadmapping
13
Stage 2 Supplier Evaluation
An industry-wide supplier evaluation,
incorporating benchmarking against a global
standard
Where is the industry now?
  • Objectives
  • Develop a holistic supplier evaluation
  • Increase data sharing and communication between
    OEMs and the local supplier industry
  • Outcomes
  • A framework for communication between supplier
    and customer focused on key metrics
  • A categorisation of suppliers
  • Understanding of the current capability/competence
    and potential capability/competence of suppliers

14
Stage 3 Intervention Development
Implementation of mechanisms to support suppliers
transition to world class capability and
competence.
How can the industry get there?
  • Objectives
  • Establish an industry resource to provide
    mechanisms and interventions to assist supplier
    capability and competence development
  • Outcomes
  • A range of government and industry supported
    mechanisms/programs to provide expert supplier
    assistance
  • Transferal of best-in-class process and system
    technology into the Australian automotive supply
    chain
  • A foundation for the future implementation of
    state-of-the-art technology and innovation to
    support new product development

15
ASEA - Status
  • Early phases of Stage 1
  • Developing testing roadmap architecture and
    process
  • Coordinating industry participation
  • Planning
  • Scoping
  • Budgeting

Stages 2 3
16
Wireless Supply Chain Tracking
17
Wireless Supply Chain Tracking Project
  • Aims
  • Conduct a production pilot on tracking stillages
  • Develop a business case and framework for broader
    implementation.
  • Investigate system integration of wireless
    tracking technologies throughout the supply
  • Involvement
  • Primary
  • AutoCRC, Toll Logistics, ANU
  • Secondary
  • MVPs, Tier 1 Suppliers

18
Why Stillages?
  • Stillages cost
  • Lose Approximately 20 of stillage stock over 7
    year period
  • High value item justification for current
    relatively high costs
  • Potential for future implementation over entire
    supply chain

19
Wireless Tracking Overview

Project Overview
21
Phase 1 Technology Evaluation
  • Primary Tasks
  • Application Definition
  • Technology Evaluation
  • Outcomes
  • Quantitative evaluation of current and emerging
    wireless tracking technologies
  • A defensible recommendation of technology/vendor
    selection for implementation of the production
    pilot

22
Phase 1 Expected obstacles
  • Which Technology is the best to use?
  • Higher frequencies vs Low frequencies
  • Active vs Passive
  • Types of antennas
  • Other Wireless Technologies
  • Chip-less wireless tech.
  • Surface acoustic wave
  • Polymer based RFID etc
  • Implementation Environment
  • Scattering of walls/metal surfaces
  • Onsite radio interference
  • Human Interference
  • etc

ANU-AutoCRC Projects
25
Other ANU-AutoCRC Projects
  • End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) Management
  • Strategic study into ELV management in an
    Australian context
  • Collaboration with RMIT 2 PhDs at each
    university
  • ANU Contact Paul Compston/ Victor Pantano
  • Material Data and Knowledge Acquisition System
  • Investigate and design a material data and
    knowledge acquisition and application system for
    the AutoCRC
  • ANU Contact Jeremy Smith
  • Software Complexity Management
  • Improve and develop software to meet the demand
    for increasing functionality and shorter
    development horizons.
  • ANU Contact Clive Boughton
  • Vision Based Collision Avoidance
  • A range of collision detection systems will be
    developed focusing on vision recognition of
    stationary and moving objects.
  • ANU Contact Rob Mahony
