Who killed the electric supply chain?
Ten years ago, the Tesla Roadster hit the streets. It didn’t just bring back electric cars from the dead, it made them sexy. Tesla helped spur a new era of the automotive industry where sensors, AI, and apps intersect with electric drivetrains to create a truly 21st century mode of transportation. But recently, Tesla’s production and quality issues have filled headlines. The disruptive automaker has struggled to meet demand for its brand new Model 3, and a Wall Street Journal article reports that Tesla has been asking its suppliers for deep discounts to help it become profitable. In this episode of Supply Chain Radio, Suhas Sreedhar and Matt Gunn discuss how mismanaged supply chains can decimate even the most innovative disruptors.
