Integrated business and product realization model for 1st tier suppliers
The main objective of the research project is to enable suppliers to have their own predevelopment process. The purpose is to enable the supplier to make a larger contribution in the value chain and not just follow instructions from the OEM. Up to now pure price discussions have taken to large part in the interaction between supplier and OEM and thereby holding back value adding and innovative activities.
The results from the project aim to contribute significantly to increased sustainability by enabling increased efficiency in the development collaboration between partners in the supply chain, and thereby reduced development costs, increased product quality and less waste.
