Introduction, Problem Statement, and Research Methodology 1.1 Introduction In modern automotive manufacturing new approaches to just-in-time supply have been developed. As part of the outsourcing activities performed by the Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM’s), suppliers are brought to a just-in- time method of supplying components and, in some cases, built up sub- assemblies. The creation of satellite assembly units within reach of the assembly line and often alongside the assembly line, has geared manufacturers to the shortest possible assembly time. Stock holdings are reduced and supply chains have been shortened, resulting in the reduction of logistical supply chains. This demands flexibility in the organisation as departments find that the involvement of employees has greatly increased with the increase in the degree of their responsibility and scope of work. With limited margin for error, the suppliers and assembly line workers depend on each other. The pressure is thus moving towards error-free performance, as everyone becomes aware of the effects of their actions and the influence on others in the value chain of the manufacture of the final product.
