Trumping High Truck Demand with 24/7 Customer Service

Challenge

A Fortune 100 automotive OEM was experiencing increased consumer demand for two of its signature midsize truck models.

Complicating the situation was the production of two van models at the same plant. This required the OEM to balance production of four vehicles while ensuring that dealers had sufficient inventory of the two truck models, whose pre-orders were seven times higher than forecast.
