Preserving profit margins. Automakers are becoming increasingly demanding with their suppliers, who must demonstrate greater flexibility and productivity at ever more competitive prices. Making production as efficient as possible to reduce costs without sacrificing quality is a priority. Winning new markets. In this ultra-competitive market, responding more quickly to recurring tender offers, with better visibility of cost prices, represents a considerable advantage for automotive suppliers. By developing virtual prototypes of car seats and interiors, they improve their responsiveness. The savings generated from the very first phase of industrialization helps them increase their profitability. Guaranteeing uptime. Automotive manufacturers are demanding a much greater variety of car seats and interiors, which means that auto suppliers must be capable of producing with agility under very short deadlines. In order to do so, they
commit to eliminating any inefficiencies in their processes. They organize their cutting room in order to guarantee maximum uptime, which enables them to deliver on time.
