Growing levels of complexity and integration coupled with the current period of automotive innovation are necessitating the adoption of Systems approaches and Systems Engineering (SE) practices. For the automotive industry to navigate this transformative period successfully, we need Systems approaches to bridge all elements of vehicle development and engage and align all parts of the business. Yet, the industry has lagged in comprehensive SE adoption, persistently retaining organizational silos and outdated paradigms for vehicle design development teams. It still structures itself around physical components of vehicles, despite having the significant majority of functionality and features derived from software and communications.
The State of Systems Engineering Adoption in the Automotive Industry captures the unresolved aspects of more comprehensively adopting Systems approaches and practices and seeks to enable industry leaders to more effectively navigate the complexity and integration challenges faced during this unprecedented period of disruptive innovation and change.
