Senior Manager of the Automotive Area of ALTEN SPAIN, José Luis S., played a prominent role at the XII Congress of Quality in the Automotive Sector, reading an interesting paper to all the attendees on new business models: “In a sector as dynamic and at the same time as demanding as the car industry, engineering services have evolved not only over time but also in step with the different cycles the industry has gone through, especially in the past decade. The paper presents a vision of the evolution of these services throughout the different cycles of the sector, characterising each one until service became a product in itself”, explains José Luis.
Organised by the Spanish Association for Quality and with the tag line “Evolution: Management 4.0”, the leading automotive companies met in Vitoria (Basque Country). “This event brings together for one day the main players in the sector in Spain, from executives of the top makers and Tier 1, 2 and 3 suppliers to the leading exponents of all the industry’s associations, R&D centres and technology complexes. Participating in this forum not only provides a fresh and up-to-date view of the sector but also allows all these stakeholders to talk to one another.”
Speed, versatility, flexibility!
That’s why ALTEN had to be there. Over 4,200 consultants work in our subsidiaries in France and abroad on projects with the top European car-makers and suppliers, making ALTEN a key partner. As José Luis explains: “Speed, versatility and flexibility in adapting to our customers’ needs have consolidated our position among the main players in the sector and made us the engineering consultants of reference for all of them. Diversity in terms of the service modes we offer is unquestionably what defines us.”
The Spanish Association for Quality has more than 1,700 members, one of which is ALTEN, and it works to implement actions to promote awareness, training, qualification and certification for professionals working in Spanish organisations, thereby promoting a culture of quality, sustainable management, service brand value, knowledge management and other processes in the interest of society.
