The automotive industry consists of many different industries and organizations involved with the manufacture, development, production, and sale of automobiles. It is arguably one of the largest industries in the world by revenue generated. With the rapid development and advancements in technology and the ever-evolving marketplace for automobiles, companies from all over the globe are now producing and marketing of automotive products. There are two types of automotive manufacturing: production and design. This article discusses the differences between these two types of manufacturing.
In the production phase, the vehicle is manufactured by the company manufacturing the parts of the vehicle. Some of the major auto manufacturers include: Ford, GM, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Nissan, BMW, Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen, Volvo, Lexus, Scion, Mini, and Saturn. Other companies include Jaguar, Saab, Lincoln, Lotus, Lincoln, and Toyota. Production involves the assembling of car parts in factories. The main components of an automobile include engine, transmission, chassis, body panels, drive train, etc. In some countries, there are also assembly plants that manufacture the cars before they enter the market. Most of the production is done in South Korea and Japan.
In the design phase, the process of developing and designing the cars is started. In the design stage, the company designing the vehicle will decide on the general concept and the overall look and style of the vehicle. After the concept has been finalized, the company will start work by designing the different parts of the car. The various shapes, sizes, and designs of each part of the car are considered by the designers to determine the best possible designs and shapes. They will then use these to create prototypes to determine the best possible models.
In the production phase, the prototype is built at the factory that was used during the design stage. The final products are then sent for testing by a certification body such as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). The products must pass a series of tests by the ASTM to ensure that they meet specific standards. The test results are then sent to the manufacturer for approval.
Once approved, the final product is ready to go to the market. The company will now have to meet all the legal regulations regarding the automobile’s production, distribution, and sales. After all legal issues are taken care of, the company will now begin marketing and advertising the auto. The company will now need to advertise its auto through the media. These advertising campaigns will consist of radio commercials, print ads, TV commercials, outdoor billboards, television commercials, catalogs, posters, radio, etc.
When it comes to marketing, automotive companies differ depending on what type of vehicle they sell. If you’re looking for a car to be your primary transportation, the marketing strategy will differ based on the type of vehicle. However, if you are looking for a business vehicle, then the marketing approach will be much different than the traditional form of selling cars.
