What We Do
Oliver Wyman supports leading auto manufacturers and suppliers worldwide as they develop and operationalize profitable business strategies and master today’s pressing digital challenges.
We help auto companies generate more value for their customers, increase their potential with new business models, innovate and optimize products and operations, and develop their brands.
We support suppliers with strategic problem-solving and innovation, development, and cost-cutting programs. Our broad experience allows us to also support wholesalers, car importers, and service providers, as well as private equity companies and investment banks in the auto industry.
Auto manufacturers can differentiate themselves through new technology, but research and development is expensive.
Today, parts, modules, and systems from suppliers are responsible for about 60 percent of the typical added value of a car
Manufacturing And Assembly
Efficiency and quality are the main goals of automotive manufacturers. Like revenue, the added value in production will increase in upcoming years.
Sales And Distribution
An average automotive customer will spend around EUR 300,000 on automotive mobility during his lifetime.
The automotive industry is shifting from being product-centric and asset driven, becoming a more service-oriented industry.
Caught between customer expectations and portfolio legacy, next-level complexity management has become a prerequisite for transformation of automotive companies.
Oliver Wyman has extensive expertise in reducing product costs across nearly all vehicle components.
Strategic Transformation, Growth And Restructuring
Suppliers need to constantly re-think and transform their business design in order to stay competitive. Oliver Wyman is here to help.
Excellence in manufacturing operations is a prerequisite for profitability in the automotive supplier segment.
Suppliers need to adapt their organizational structure to their growing size and level of complexity as well as to evolving industry requirements.
