Bmw begins to adopt 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 may be able to deliver components faster, similar parts may be cheaper from another supplier at the same time because CNET Remarks. New Honeywell H1 machine can determine the most optimal selections from the available choices.
Tracking the availability and prices of components from various vendors can be a complex task, especially for traditional computers, so BMW is hoping the quantum approach can help it improve its manufacturing processes. It’s not the first automaker to test quantum computing. Volkswagen has tried to use technology develop better traffic management systems.
