One of the major players in the electricity industry decided to transform one of its subsidiaries, specializing in the management of on-board electrical power systems (for the aerospace, rail, industrial-vehicle sectors) and move into the electric car market. The future of the industrial site and the branch chosen for this conversion project depended on the successful management of this strategic reorientation.
Since the Group has facilities around the world, the skills needed were recruited in-house, in several countries (United States, China, India, France, Hungary, Italy, etc.).
The main challenge was therefore to ensure efficient coordination between the design office, suppliers, project managers and internal departments, while supporting the latter through the restructuring of their organization. The objective was to bring the departments up to the level of requirements applied in the automotive industry (QCD, Standards, etc.), while fulfilling the operational aspects of procurement for the prototypes during the different project phases and taking into account the launch of the PPAP for preliminary production series and mass production.
