Automotive product teams are challenged to remain competitive, optimize operational efficiencies, and achieve profitability in the face of exponential product complexity. This is today’s Business of Engineering.

Leading manufacturers are turning to modern PLM to orchestrate the full spectrum of product development activities, from quoting and product costing to production and lessons learned.

Reynaldo Reyes, Lear and Martin van der Roest, vDR discuss powering the Business of Engineering with a common digital platform for process repeatability and collaboration, unified data access, and instant program metrics and insights.

Primary Topics: 

  • How to shift the PLM paradigm to include decisions about cost
  • The benefit of linking cost data to the change process
  • How to establish a living pro-forma P&L from the quoting process to production
  • Leveraging APQP, PPAP and other predefined templates and associated processes linked to designs, tooling, manufacturing process, geo-locations, etc.
