How to make automotive ready for software?

The Challenge

The traditional setup of our client’s global automotive research and development centre struggled with the quality and timing of their software deliveries.

How? Our approach

Strategy Engineers conducted benchmarking and industry best practice analysis of potential organisational set-ups. We modified those to the client’s situation and needs. In a nine-month transformation programme, SE redefined the client’s entire engineering organisation– implementing a dedicated software development organisation.

So what? Our impact

Installation of dedicated software development organisation on eye-level with vehicle (hardware) development and Powertrain engineering. Transfer of over 500 engineers. Definition of updated process models, governance and role models.


Let’s prepare for the future
