Based on the market requirements, a complexity-optimized performance system with the associated processes and structures should be derived according to the respective level of the supply pyramid. For this purpose, we jointly design the service and product portfolio, the product architecture, the business processes and the organizational structure and synchronize them with each other. In the highly demanding environment of the automotive industry, we work successfully in partnership with automotive manufacturers, system and component suppliers, and innovative start-ups, and together we shape the future of mobility.
The number of variants of the new product generation of a commercial vehicle was to be significantly reduced at market launch compared to the predecessor vehicle. Our task here was to support the SE teams in generating ideas and identifying potential, and to ensure that targets were achieved in the shortest possible time.
For selected module assemblies, the existing procedure at an OEM for optimizing the external and internal diversity of variants was to be validated and further potential identified.
At a Tier 2 automotive supplier, which predominantly manufactures products required by customers, potential for improvement regarding unnecessary product and process complexities was to be identified and options for action to be derived.
