November Automotive Roundtable in Chongqing, Nov 17

– Intelligent Manufacturing – Challenges & Opportunities for China’s Auto Industry-

At 25 million vehicles per year the automotive industry in China has reached an output that would have sounded incredible just a few years ago. To cope with the sheer size of the production volume appears to be challenging enough. Fierce competition in a maturing market and rising production cost put pressure on prices and margins. And ever more sophisticated designs of cars and components pose further challenges to manufacturers. Will “Intelligent Manufacturing” be the solution for OEM and suppliers? Our November Roundtable in Chongqing will try to find an answer.
