Automotive Insiders: Supplier RFQ Timing and Cost Calculations Host Bonnie D. Graham speaks with POLARIXPARTNER CEO Markus Wiederstein and Siemens Teamcenter Product Cost Management Executive John Monica about automotive suppliers!

The automotive industry is in a dramatic change. The main topics are e-mobility, autonomous driving & new mobility concepts. Innovation cycles will shorten significantly, and as a consequence, the product life cycles will also shrink. The share of Software in a car will increase while the percentage of mechanics goes down. A car might be perceived as a software device.

Many automotive suppliers have expressed concerns that their OEM customers have expectations for quote response times that don’t allow for adequate profitability analysis. In the Podcast, Markus Wiederstein (POLARIXPARTNER) and John Monica (Siemens) discuss RFQ process improvement supported by a new cost calculation tool.
