Outlook Q4 2021 Smart factory – Connectivity Enhanced Vehicle Production

Automotive OEMs are either retooling their factories or making plans to retool their factories with connectivity as a central feature. As OEMs move away from the production of ICE to electric or hybrid vehicles the factories need to be not only retooled but rethought as flexibility and adaptability become more significant success factors than scale.

Working on EV systems and architectures that are rapidly evolving means that traditional approaches to minimize vehicle production costs may not be appropriate. Low-cost sources of power in addition to availability of workforces with appropriate skills can mean moving factories from traditional regions to new greenfield shovel ready locations.

The opportunity to combine greenfield sites with the promise of 4G/5G private networks to deliver sustainable, flexible and cost-effective manufacturing is high on the priority list of many OEMs. Especially since great connectivity is an essential capability to exploit the benefits of AI, robotics, AR, cloud computing, digital twinning, 3D printing and automation.

Against this background we conducted a connectivity survey in the first half of 2021 to understand how the industry was approaching factory connectivity, what is important and who was influencing the direction. The presentation by Steve Bell, Principal Analyst – Connectivity, Wards Intelligence will address some of the results from an upcoming report.

Outlook Q4 2021 The New and Used Vehicle Market: What are the Questions?

Paul McCarthy’s presentation provides an economist’s perspective on demand, supply, and the connection between new and used vehicles gleaned from over 25 years of modeling at Ford and Ford Credit. He will make a case for an alternative perspective on leasing and used vehicle price dynamics, and highlight the importance of financing conditions on vehicle demand. His overall framework will help in understanding recent developments, while also shedding light on how the market may evolve with the rollout of electric vehicles.
