Best in Class Automotive Facilities: Create the benchmark

Too often Clients request benchmarking information for what we consider to be the best automotive manufacturing facilities. Whilst we are able to provide an holistic approach to this benchmarking of peers, we firmly believe that Clients should focus on becoming the benchmark.

We consider the following factors to be key to creating the best in class or world class manufacturing facilities:

1. Reducing lead times. 2. Increasing speed-to-market of product.

3. Cutting operating costs. 4. Exceeding customer expectations.

5. Managing the global enterprise. 6. Streamlining outsourcing processes.

7. Improving business performance visibility.

Through the work that we do we can influence each one of these key factors through our Programme Integration Model which supports Clients from inception of a business case for a new manufacturing facility, right through to Start Of Production (SOP).
