In the era of EVs and Electrification, in order to build successful companies and profitable products, Competitive Benchmarking Services of the market is essential to understand where the market leader stands today. Hinduja Tech performs Benchmarking to Purpose and has real-time experience in Market Research, Sub-System, USP and White Space Analysis. We provide high-end support to our customers to stay ahead of competition, adopt innovative and new strategies, through industry benchmarks, enabling them to improve their processes, systems, and take right business decisions.
Our Competitive Benchmarking Services includes a 3 Step process – Pre-Process, Mid-Process and Post-Process; where the Pre-Process includes Performance Benchmarking and Static Benchmarking. The Mid-Process includes the Vehicle Teardown studies followed by the Post-Process that involves Material Analysis, Electric & Electronics Architecture, Schematic Instruction (HV/LV), Control Strategy, Reverse Mapping and Reverse Engineering.
Large OEMs spend a lot of time, cost and resources to carry out teardown activities to get a lot out of the competitive benchmarking services exercise. Teardown explicitly shows the key components and features of a competitor’s vehicle or system, which is the target for a new vehicle development. We love to breakdown things, drill deeper into every information that is possibly there. We conduct teardown studies for various types of vehicles and carry out detailed specifications, and cost analysis of all the components, including weight & dimensions, and manufacturing processes.
Every vehicle has its own pros and cons. Every automaker is trying harder than ever to achieve optimum performance levels and attract more customers. Hinduja Tech’s team journeys with you to identify your competition, analyze what they do best and suggest how you can be better in that space. Performance Benchmarking of a vehicle typically includes analyzing the speed, position and distance both indoors and outdoors; acceleration and deceleration testing, lap timing, measuring cornering g-forces, rolling resistance and vehicle aerodynamics.
Functions of a vehicle are more precise than accurate. Every component in the BOM serves a very specific purpose. We assess and find solutions for different stages of vehicle development, from component to systems to full vehicle development. Hinduja Tech always aims to do a commendable job by delivering the best-in-class designs; we also have excellent experience with Engineering & Manufacturing Practices and an apt choice of Mounting and Fastening.
With pressure building on automotive organizations (OEMs/Tier X Suppliers) to reduce cost, Value Analysis/Value Engineering becomes the central theme to achieve this mission on sustainability. To stay competitive in the market place, lean design & manufacturing is critical for achieving cost excellence.
OEMs or Tier-1 suppliers are initiating VA/VE programs, but there is a lack of end-to-end visibility with weak ideas in the pipeline. Hinduja Tech’s VAVE Idea Management Solution brings these benefits to VA/VE Managers :
• Reduction in lead time for VA/VE Idea Management Process
• Reduction in Idea Mortality Rate
• Strong Idea Pipeline
For years, automakers have been plagued by the question of Make vs Buy. Should I build this internally or should I outsource to a supplier? Both have their own pros and cons. We at Hinduja Tech help you make the right decision. For every component/part that we come across, we analyze the material used, vehicle dimensions, cost margins, right suppliers, etc. and provide valuable information for you to act upon.
