The growing global competition demands smart production systems, combined with flexible logistics systems. Which can be adapted quickly and also serve the ever-increasing demand for model diversity. We support Automotive clients to plan and implement new manufacturing technologies to expand their core competencies and productivity. Also identify necessary configuration options to meet manufacturing challenges efficiently
The automotive industry is very dynamic and requires extreme flexibility, adaptability and agility. The benefits of digitisation in manufacturing processes are quite clear as robotic and automated processes provide high levels of accuracy, able to perform tasks at high rates, to accomplish more complex engineering tasks and collaborative manufacturing operations. We support our clients asses their manufacturing capabilities, plan to stand in the competition, cope with developments around Industries 4.0, demographic change and data-driven production.
Micromobility sector in Africa encompass a strong customer base and has done so roughly two to three times faster than either car sharing or ride hailing. The sector has been core for intra and inner cities transportation across the region and continues to grow. In just a few years, several micromobility start-ups have been launched However the sector faces constraints include its suitability for relevant mobility use cases, safety control, customer adoption, vehicle age fit, low carbon emission control, congestion and traffic management and micromobility’s lower presence in rural areas.
To stimulate auto manufacturing localisation, industrialisation and growth of local market for new vehicles, traditional dealership models and aftermarket must be transformed to limit the volume of imported second hand cars and components imported. Favourable policies, framework and strategies should instituted. We combine management excellence and engineering practices to transform and accelerate Automotive industry growth in a rapid changing markets.
Auto and mobility business services can generate value in multiple ways; by accelerating growth, improving margins, increasing income stream predictability, and boosting both customer and product intimacy. Beyond these evolving stakes, companies must move proactively to capture the next opportunities: Use digital technologies to increase technical and customer experience and adopt connectivity-driven commercial models to capture consumer data to aid planning and decision making.
Given high commodity prices and the predicted tight supply of nickel and cobalt in the coming years. Recycling EV batteries can make sense as battery electrodes contain highly valued metals. While having an additional source of battery metals through recycling can be compelling to battery makers looking to secure supply, it is critical now to develop a recycling process that is sufficiently cost-competitive with mining for the path to gain scale. However, to unlock this new pool of battery supply, four challenges in repurposing must be overcomed while battery-ownership models evolve: battery-pack design size, falling cost for new batteries, second-life-battery quality or performance standards and immature regulatory regime
We have been supporting Vehicle OEMs to transform and improve new product introduction (NPI) and manufacturing assembly process (MAP) to enhance product quality and operation excellence.
We have been supporting our premium global OEM client in the UK to enhance product quality, customer satisfaction, concepts quality strategies and processes.
We have been supporting a new indigenous vehicle manufacturing and assembly company is South Africa with strategic planning, vehicle programme planning, manufacturing and supply chain process set up.

Today’s automotive corporate leaders navigate a complex environment that is changing at an ever-accelerating pace. In a risk environment that is growing more perilous and costly, leaders need to help steer their companies toward resilience and value by embedding strategic risk capabilities throughout their companies. Most companies operate in a complex, industry-specific risk environment. They must navigate macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainties and face risks arising in the areas of strategy, finance, products, operations, and compliance and conduct. In auto companies and suppliers have developed advanced approaches to managing risks that are specific to their business models. These approaches can sustain significant value. At the same time companies are challenged by emerging new types of risks for which they need to develop effective mitigation plans; in their absence, the losses from serious risk events can be crippling.
Companies must control supply-chain risks with sophisticated monitoring models that allow to identify potential risks upfront across the supply chain. At the same time, need to address the strategic challenge of shifting toward electric-powered and autonomous vehicles, connected consumer, automotive digitisation and stringent regulatory.
