ABSTRACT
In the first of a series of articles on the 3DayCar project, the authors set the scene and explain the project. The key question for the project is whether vehicle stock can be virtually eliminated without a significant effect on the level of component stock in the production supply chain. The first area of research in the project was to map the process from the customer ordering the car, through to the vehicle being produced and delivered to the customer. The key principles in making the portential feasibility of the project are that cars should be built only when required by customers, orders should be booked directly into assembly slots, production slots should be visible to supply chain partners and technical complexity should be minimized while maintaining customer choice.
