Sustainable Mobility: Automotive Industry Challenges, Opportunities and the Role of PLM
This report seeks to frame the issues, challenges and opportunities presented by the global automotive industry’s drive toward sustainable mobility. Through in-depth research and interviews with executives, policy makers and thought leaders at automotive OEMs and suppliers, government agencies, and nongovernmental bodies influencing policy and practice, we sought to:
  • Identify the challenges these initiatives pose for the auto industry and its stakeholders today
  • Explore the range of technologies, entrenched and emerging alike, now being evaluated and adopted to help meet these challenges
  • Explore in particular the value of product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions in meeting these challenges, today and going forward
The perspectives in this report are intended to benefit – and foster mutual understanding among – corporate executives, compliance officers, product development executives, program managers, PLM system leads, discipline leads, engineers, designers and other stakeholders in the automotive industry’s present and future. We believe informed, coordinated engagement by all these is crucial to meet the triple-bottom-line challenge – people/planet/profit – posed by sustainability, and to emerge from today’s industry turmoil strengthened and poised to lead.
