‘Interview with Jean-Marc Carlicchi: Renault’s Digitalization Plans’


Renault, a major carmaker, is making significant strides in its digitalization journey. According to Carlicchi, the company has successfully moved through various stages of implementation and understanding to reach the predictive analytics phase. In a bid to enhance its supply chain operations, Renault has forged key partnerships with institutions like École des Ponts ParisTech, a renowned school of science, engineering, and technology.

Carlicchi emphasized the importance of a systematic approach to digitalization, which Renault has been following for almost five years. The first phase involved identifying and understanding data, followed by visualizing it and implementing necessary changes through training and process adjustments. The company then focused on ensuring the reliability of its operations, particularly in inbound transportation, through the establishment of a control tower. Now, Renault has entered the final stage of AI and predictive analytics, where machines are being taught to make automated decisions.

This strategic shift towards AI optimization in the supply chain underscores Renault’s commitment to leveraging cutting-edge technologies to drive efficiencies and enhance operational excellence. By collaborating with academic institutions and embracing digital transformation, Renault aims to stay at the forefront of innovation in the automotive industry.
