The Automotive industry is currently undergoing unprecedented change, resulting in new challenges and new opportunities for companies in the automotive industry in areas such as globalization, manufacturing competitiveness, green and connected vehicle technologies, supply chain management, talent management, enterprise risk, and mergers and acquisitions.

Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM’s) are investing more to improve product creation to better serve their customers and raise profitability. These trends will intensify pressure to maximize manufacturing efficiency and operational performance of both OEM’s and their suppliers. In the future, OEMs will align products and resources with their brand positioning. They are designing vehicles so they can be assembled more efficiently while improving quality. The proliferation of brands and niche vehicles requires that OEMs become more flexible so they can produce multiple models in one standardized process.

Suppliers also will see major changes in their value creation structures. They will need to improve operational efficiency to achieve additional cost reductions which are necessary to remain competitive. These trends make it critically important that they develop a sophisticated, long-term manufacturing strategy.
