Accelerated Market Introduction of a ComponentOwing to our project support, an exterior component can be brought to serial production only 11 months after the decision to do so.
Initial SituationIncreasing quality issues and delivery problems of a supplier require the accelerated launch of an exterior module for a facelift, which was initially planned for the next model.
GoalLaunch of a new module from the decision until SOP in 11 months, securing the introduction of the new component at the model year SOP without any ramp-up. Risk management with gate for a go/no go decision.
ApproachValidation of the components adaption regarding fit to car body and functions, (resonance frequency, aerodynamics, etc.) with rapid-prototyping parts.
Tooling management to secure the availability of series tools and intensive support of the industrialization process, as well as the start-up of the partly automated assembly line.
