Automotive & Transportation

Customers around the world have more vehicle choices than ever before which puts tremendous pressure on vehicle manufacturers and suppliers to deliver high-quality, innovative vehicles as efficiently as possible.

Vehicle manufactures need to be sure they clearly understand the voice of the customer and respond with the types of vehicles they demand. Good decisions must be made in the context of not only customer demands, but also take into account environmental concerns that impact vehicle performance and emissions, increasing vehicle complexity with greater and greater investments in electronic systems and safety systems.

All this is complicated further by the increasingly global nature of the industry and its suppliers. Building the right product and building the product right is a challenge that can be met, however, if your company is ready to take a systems-driven approach to all phases of product development.
