BMW owners waiting for repairs on supply chain breakdown

Luxury car manufacturer BMW is struggling to deliver spare parts on time because of a new supply-management system, forcing customers to wait for repairs.

About 10 percent of the parts are not immediately available in the central warehouse in Dingolfing, Germany, due to the changeover, Manfred Grunert, a spokesman for the Munich-based company, said in an e-mail. BMW has workers on extra shifts to help shorten the wait, and aims to have the new system working properly by early September.
