System suppliers and engineering partner: It's a match! Asking the right questions at the beginning saves time, money and nerves later on.
The automotive industry is in the midst of a major transformation, which equally impact the supply industry. The call for model diversity, alternative powertrains and the digitization of vehicles is reducing development cycles amid increasing price pressure. As the OEM backbone, system suppliers are also under increasingly intense pressure. They are confronted with complex requirements, processes and structures and are taking on more responsibility for their customers in the field of research and development. If system suppliers want to meet these requirements, they often need an experienced engineering service provider at their side as a partner, especially when build-to-specification engineering expertise is required.
But how do you find the suitable partner who has the appropriate expertise, the necessary capacities and profound process reliability?
Similar to speed dating, it is essential to ask the right questions to quickly ensure that your counterpart is a good match for you.
