Real-time supply chain management

Real-time notifications and track & trace guarantee supply security for the BMW Group

The Connected Supply Chain (CSC)

The BMW Group's Connected Supply Chain (CSC) ensures greater levels of transparency and efficiency in parts supply. Our IT solutions – intelligent, automated notifications and real-time shipment tracking – form a vital element in the supply chain.

The CSC portal developed by EURO-LOG and configured for BMW functions as a basis for communication and information for supply to the factories for all of the process partners involved: from the supplier to the transportation service provider through to BMW, i.e. end-to-end.

The CSC portal processes all information and Track & Trace data in real time. Materials controllers and logisticians in the factories receive updates via the portal at 15-minute intervals, informing them of which goods are located where and whether they will arrive on time.

Using the consolidated data, automatic notifications and alerts are generated, for example when delivery quantities are different or departure is delayed or the delivery is late. In this way, costly special trips or even interruptions to production in the factories can be avoided.

Connected Supply Chain Overview

CSC stream integration at BMW

Key elements of the project at a glance

  • Provision of information in real time to all stakeholders in the supply chain through B2B integration
  • Consideration for actual transportation times when transmitting the ETA data (estimated time of arrival) along the multi-modal supply chain
  • Alerting: Early information for deviations, delays and delivery defaults
  • Simplified monitoring of the supply chain: Manual intervention is only necessary for critical incidents
  • Using stored data and quantities, automated notification proposals are calculated and produced
  • Rapid implementation: The first test version was provided three months after the contract was awarded and other factories, suppliers and hauliers were linked up over the course of just a few months
