Task

Consider the following hypothetical scenario in regards to Jaguar Land Rover.

As consumers and automotive manufacturers become more aware of environmental issues, the pressure to develop new alternative fueled cars has become of strategic importance.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to meeting the needs of their consumers and therefore has taken the decision to add an all electric vehicle to their existing line up. To reach this objective, JLR will have to implement new supply chains. This report will focus on the creation of supply chain networks from internationally based suppliers to the UK.

You will have to gather information and subsequently make decisions regarding the location of new JLR suppliers according to decision-making systems.

You will have to:

• Identify and select sources of data and information regarding suppliers (you will need to consider the entire supply chain)

• Identify the legal requirements relating to the collection use and storage of data and information

• Select and apply appropriate decision-making frameworks to support the selection of the suppliers

• Analyse and present information to support the decisions regarding suppliers selection

• Consider how the supply chain for the new vehicle may differ to previous vehicles at JLR.

• Consider how quality, quantity and cost will be addressed when making decisions throughout the supply chain.

• Analyse the role of the customer in the supply chain.

• Identify and discuss potential areas of difficulties in the new supply chain, offering ideas for constructive solutions.
