Abstract

The automotive industry in Europe faces intense competition and is dealing with a customer who is less patient and more demanding in terms of vehicle choice. The current system of making vehicles presents a 'vicious circle' where forecast based production and push based selling using discounts and incentives is leading to lower profits, thus more volume is needed to maintain the equilibrium. Build to Order (BTO) strategies may offer a new direction for manufacturers.
