What We Do

Production efficiency and quality are the main goals of automotive manufacturers. Like revenue, the added value in production will increase in upcoming years. However, regional priorities will change, and the growing complexity and variety of vehicles will increasingly challenge production requirements.

As vehicles become more complex, so do the requirements for production and supply chains. The strong shift in production in recent years toward emerging markets will continue. The bulk of new production capacity will be built in China, India, Mexico, Eastern Europe, and South America. Still, capacity continues to expand in traditional locations due to wide productivity improvements, and traditional production regions remain competitive. Quality requirements continue to rise, offering an immense challenge to all disciplines from development, engineering, purchasing, and ultimately production.

Oliver Wyman offers manufacturers and suppliers a wide range of services in the areas of manufacturing strategy, production network improvement, lean manufacturing, and operational excellence. Our capabilities expanded with the acquisition of Harbour Consulting, a top consulting firm for increasing productivity in the automotive industry. Furthermore, Oliver Wyman also works on production due diligence and operational improvement programs for private equity investors, hedge funds, and industrial investors.
