BMW Testing Honeywell Quantum Computing Systems to Determine How to Optimize Supply Chains

By IQT News posted 29 Jan 2021

(Engadget) BMW is starting to use quantum computing to optimize its supply chains. The automaker has started testing Honeywell systems to help it determine the best components to buy at the right time without disrupting production. While one supplier might be able to deliver components faster, similar parts might be cheaper from another supplier at the same time. The new Honeywell H1 machine can determine the most optimal selections from the available choices.
Tracking the availability and pricing of components from a variety of suppliers can be a complex task, especially for traditional computers, so BMW is hoping that the quantum approach can help it to improve its manufacturing processes.
