Taking a Closer Look at Ford’s New and Improved Product Development Procedures
As we mentioned in our introduction, Ford is looking to have the most efficient production development procedure in the industry within five years. Ford has said that improved efficiency will mean future Ford models will be more affordable, more powerful, more efficient and more durable than ever before – which is truly saying something considering how powerful, efficient, affordable and durable Ford cars, trucks and SUVs are now. Ford has said they are looking to accomplish this goal by “moving to flexible vehicle architectures and more common parts across models, cutting new product development time – from sketch to dealer showroom – by 20 percent.” Ford is also working to achieve this goal by simplifying its entire lineup. This has already started to happen, as Ford has said they have “reduced orderable combinations on (their) SUVs by 80 percent since 2014, (which includes) a 97 percent reduction on the new Edge coming later this year.”
