Rethinking production – Taking automotive operations networks to the next level

by Roland Berger

The automotive industry is undergoing a major disruption. We believe that this transformation is driven by four major trends: New mobility trends and behaviors are developing around the world, autonomous technologies have firmly arrived on the scene, digital features are impacting firms and consumers, and powertrain electrification is causing automakers to rethink their legacy business while preparing for new growth areas.

In our study “Rethinking production – Taking automotive operations networks to the next level” we set out to identify the key characteristics of increased operational efficiency in automotive production.
