Global automotive seating supplier Adient has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan as a 2017 Manufacturing Leadership Award winner for its outstanding achievement in developing mobile solutions.
Adient was created in 2016 when Johnson Controls’ automotive seating business was spun off as an independent company.
The Manufacturing Leadership Awards honor manufacturing companies and individual manufacturing leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. Winning projects and manufacturing leaders have demonstrated achievement in one of a wide range of categories, and are chosen by a panel of judges for results that have delivered clear and compelling value, return on investment and other tangible outcomes.
Adient’s winning project included development of three mobile applications that enabled the company to provide quick access to program, vehicle and sales data through a mobile interface, including:
- Vehicle Content – Displays parts of a vehicle that are manufactured by Adient
- Program Translator – Retrieves information about a vehicle program
- Sales Quick Reference App – Gives sales team opportunities and sales data
- Supplier Quality Analytics – Provides actionable insights into supplier quality
