The prime objective of "AC-DC" is to develop a concept, which radically enhances automotive manufacturing in order to achieve the high level of responsiveness required for a 5-Days car according to customer specifications and to validate/demonstrate the novel approach using the characteristic component light-weight chassis as a master. This calls for both a determined step forward in motor vehicle technology combined with a dynamic planning process involving the full supply chain. In order to break with the traditional hierarchic manufacturing revolutionary concurrent elements must be introduced that reduce stocks and allow last moment configuration of new products in higher variations and quality and at lower costs.
