V Stark1, CD van Schoor² & JJ Strasheim² ²Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering University of Pretoria vanessa.stark@bmw.co.za, chris.vanschoor@up.ac.za johan.strasheim@up.ac.za Key words: Supply Chain; Automotive; JIT; JIS; OEM; Suppliers; Supply Planning Methodology; Outsourcing; MIDP Supply Planning in the Automotive Industry is a vital ingredient for Supply Chain Integration. The role and function of a Supply Planner, although clearly defined in European developed methods, lacks the practical dimension. This paper describes such a practical approach that was developed for Supply Planning in the South African Automotive Industry. The framework highlights all the aspects – from a business and functional perspective - that need to be considered on a global and local scale. The framework describes the role and responsibilities of the Supply Planner as an active supply chain designer during the product/production development process.
