This thesis aims to analyse a traditional automotive supply chain and to integrate technologies 4.0 to solve the main criticalities. The first chapter gives an overview on the concepts of Supply Chain Management and Automotive Industry. Then, through literature review mapping of the Automotive Supply Chain is defined taking into account the main processes involved: receiving and processing an order, procurement, management of logistics flows within the OEM, assembly, and distribution. For each phase, a dedicated material and information flow chart is defined. After an appraisal of the mappings, some criticalities have been found. To better understand the root causes of the main issues the five whys method has been implemented. In the third chapter, counter-measures are proposed to the matters discussed in the previous chapters exploiting the technologies of Industry 4.0. The last chapter provides the benefits that this master thesis work can provide to the traditional Supply Chain, its limits, and some considerations and suggestions for future research.
