Process improvement programs in automotive electronics

Connected systems, distributed development projects and rapid project cycles – vehicle software and electronic system development are becoming increasingly complex. Our process improvement programmes help both manufacturers and their suppliers with new workflows and the introduction of new methods in their electronics development. They also help clients stay in control.

As an experienced consultant, you will spearhead integrated process improvement programmes. Working on behalf of established vehicle manufacturers and leading suppliers, you and your project team will focus business processes on new requirements. This is a challenging role that will involve working in close collaboration with our Management Consultant team. You will adopt a variety of roles depending on the specific situation. For example sometimes you will act as a consultant and on other occasions you will be a process coach or manage workshops.

The things you can’t wait to work on

  • You will be responsible for the success of our process improvement programmes, from initial concept development to implementation. You will coordinate your interdisciplinary project team and synchronise tasks and work across different departments and functions. This will involve working directly with clients at home and abroad in a fast-moving and varied environment involving sophisticated systems and technologies about to enter serial production.
  • Your methods of choice will be agile models or procedural/reference models such as Automotive SPICE®. You will equip our customers with the necessary know-how and soft skills, thus empowering them to make improvements at the forefront of project implementation.
  • You will also work with a variety of experienced colleagues and relish the prospect of exchanging ideas with other members of our project teams.

The things you already offer

  • You can already point to a strong track record with process improvements, ideally working on full-scale programmes. Of course, it would also be an advantage if you are familiar with the particular nature of product and electronics development.
  • The methods you apply to comprehensive improvement programmes are based on agile scaling or established procedural models such as Automotive SPICE® and comparable reference processes. Ideally, you are experienced in industry requirements such as safety management systems under ISO standard 26262.
  • Your rich repertoire of methods and soft skills enables you to ensure that the ideas and suggestions you come up with are immediately applicable to project practice.
  • You will work directly on the premises of customers, often in an international setting. You enjoy the opportunity to work with people from different cultures and specialist disciplines, helping them to move forward with their tasks.
