Focus automotive industry - Digital value creation networks in the tool and die industry

 

Currently the competitive pressure on a high- wage location like Germany is intensified by the ongoing financial crisis in the Euro-zone. Especially the manufacturing industry is in a dynamic environment. The most relevant economic barometer for the manufacturing industry is the automotive industry as a core industry and the largest employer in Germany. Digital transformation can be understood as an opportunity to enhance the efficiency by for example a cooperative value creation. This study aims to show how tool shops can meet the market challenges by a cooperation in digital value networks. In order to meet this requirement the WZL from RWTH Aachen University and Capgemini Consulting have worked out this study in close cooperation.
