Auto­mot­ive

The automotive industry is ever-changing. In difficult years, capacities must be quickly adjusted to flexibly respond to decreased demand. Good years can bring their own requirements that are equally as challenging. OEMs must differentiate their vehicle segments often with reduced numbers of units per segment, they must stabilize established markets by investing in new technologies, and must tap into new markets through massive capacity development.

Trends & Challenges

  • Providing growth markets with products at competitive costs requires even more intensive globalization of value-creation processes.
  • Risks in value-creation networks increase demands on planning and management, such as through SC collaboration and the resulting increased visibility.
  • Vertical and horizontal linkages between production and logistics are necessary to build intelligent, agile value-creation chains.
  • Changing social values and increasing urbanization drive concepts of the future, such as alternative powertrains, downsizing, or connected cars.
  • The development of innovative technologies such as 3D printing results in new concepts for providing spare parts.
