  OEM FOCUS TOPICS AND WORKSHOPS
16.15h

In two parallel focus workshops, the conference discusses two important topics in today’s industrial car body part production. The workshop topics and question will be initiated by OEM impulse presentations outlining the current situation and issues to be addressed.

Workshop 1: Customer-perceived quality
What parameters govern customer-perceived quality and how are they determined for future car body projects? What trends are noticed and how will they affect car body part production and car body engineering in general?
   OEM impulse:
     - Hideki Taoka, Honda Motor Co., Ltd, JP
     - Niklas Sonesson, Volvo Car Corporation, SE

Workshop 2: Tooling lead time
What can be regarded as best practice procedures from the start of die design to full functioning dies delivering full performance and quality? How to reach that best practice?
   OEM impulse:
     Marc Cappelaere, Renault S.A.S., FR
