Sturtevant, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/18/2016 -- Topper Industrial, leader in the material handling equipment industry, looked at the high stakes in recall management and how auto industry supply chain managers must take a hard look at analytics. While many auto executives (42%) expect more industry recalls in 2016, just 8% use advanced predictive analytics to help prevent, prepare for, and manage recalls, according to a recent online poll from Deloitte. Nearly one-quarter (23%) have no operational product safety and recall anticipatory analytic capabilities.
According to Ed Brown, founder of Topper Industrial which services many of the top tier automotive companies and their suppliers migrate to a fork truck free environment, "Traditional fork truck delivery encourages batch delivery of large amounts of inventory or parts to an area for assembly or building. At a glance, this sounds like a good idea by in fact this just perpetuates the possibility for safety, quality, traceability, tracking, and ergonomics issues."
