Abstract

Our aim is to demonstrate how Tesla revolutionized the traditional supply chain and set up a potential model for current or future electric car manufacturers to implement. The purpose of this presentation is to highlight the importance of continuous improvement (kaizen) and innovation within the supply chain, while comparing new methods to traditional ones. Information on the topic is readily available and will be gathered through various means including: internet webpages, scholarly articles, statistical data, and textbooks. Our tentative conclusion will show that the methodology and processes used by Tesla will and should be applied to other electric car manufacturers in an effort to decrease costs associated with transportation while helping to eliminate unnecessary waste and purchasing costs.
