SAP, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young begin alliance work

NEW YORK - Automotive industry executives will get the first look at two companies' efforts to improve the automotive supply chain at the Cap Gemini Ernst & Young Automotive Summit in Bonn, Germany, Oct. 7-9.

Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, a management and information technology consulting firm, and technology company SAP AG are exploring ways to improve make-to-order and locate-to-order processes. They want to capture and integrate data from all parts of the supply chain in real time. They say this will help auto-makers modify manufacturing and logistics plans to speed vehicle production.

SAP's mySAP Automotive software is used for engineering, planning, supply-chain management, procurement and customer relationship management, allowing customers to monitor changes in vehicle development and production phases.

Cap Gemini Ernst & Young and SAP joint teams in France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States have been working on the project since the companies announced their alliance in August.
