The study examines current vendor tooling practices and analyzes never-before-seen data from six major automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) based on four key areas: product development, foreign build process, purchasing and tool location. Ove Schuett, vice president of CATIA, Dassault Systèmes, will begin the event by sharing his perspective on the critical need for improved collaboration between suppliers and OEMs. Schuett will discuss historical challenges to collaboration and how the evolution of supply chain management and product lifecycle management (PLM) has resulted in new, more effective methods of communication. He will also elucidate the significance of the study from OESA and the Harbour-Felax Group, which includes data collected over the period of five years from General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Nissan and Honda. Later in the morning, automotive analyst and president of the Harbour-Felax Group, Laurie Harbour-Felax, will discuss solutions for cutting the cost of tooling practices based on case studies from the aforementioned OEMs. Also speaking at the event will be industry leaders from Clark Hill PLC and General Motors. ### About Dassault Systèmes As a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, Dassault Systèmes brings value to more than 100,000 customers in 80 countries.
