A process-oriented IT set-up, close networking with business partners and an efficient supply chain are crucial competition factors in a market, which is marked by continually rising raw material prices, increased competition as a result of globalisation, enormous price pressures and the desire to supply the customer with the most individualised products possible.
The objective of the automobile industry is to reduce the automobile „Order-to-Delivery“ time – ideally with innovative „Build-to-Order” processes, so that the customer can order his automobile to individual expectations and so that fast delivery times can be realized.

Optimization in the manufacturing and delivery processes must therefore be supported by capable and flexible IT systems.
