Connected and

Driving Forward Fast
Monday 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Monday 1:00 PM – 4:30 PM
Monday 1:00 PM – 4:30 PM
The automotive industry is fueling the U.S.
economy on the strength of its manufacturing
core. Modern manufacturing is an increasingly
complex integration of engineering,
manufacturing, supply chain, and information
and technology systems. The perception that
factories are monolithic, inflexible transfer
lines operating in a dark and unappealing
environment is inaccurate and outdated. In
fact, factories of today are technologically
advanced and innovative.
Intense pressure to meet demands for fuel
economy and safety are transforming the
materials and production methods used in
today’s vehicles. With many pathways to
reduce vehicle weight and improve safety,
there is no single near-term strategy that is
being applied
by the industry.
Use of advanced
high strength
steel, aluminum,
and structural
composites are serious contenders for all
new vehicles. Long term, a mixed-material
approach is seen by the industry to offer one
of the most economical, lightweight solutions,
but this approach adds complexity at every
development step from design to fabrication
and assembly. This panel will exhibit stateof-the-art lightweighting solutions and how
they are being designed, tooled, fabricated
and assembled today, and discuss what can
be expected tomorrow. The winner of the 2014
Altair Enlighten Award will be announced
during this session.
Connected and automated vehicle
technologies are revolutionizing the way
we think about how vehicles are designed,
engineered, manufactured, and used.
These technologies are enhancing safety,
enabling infotainment and location-based
services, improving diagnostics and
prognostics, and enriching the consumer
and driver experiences. Clearly, connected
and automated vehicle technologies are
affecting the driving experience and over time
will greatly influence the future of personal
transportation.
This keynote session will launch the 2014 CAR
Management Briefing Seminars focused on the
“might” of manufacturing and its importance.
The session will showcase new product and
process technologies, and demonstrate the
breadth, depth and performance of state-ofthe-art technology integration. Presentations
and discussions will focus on manufacturing
excellence, and present advanced vehicle
technologies that support fuel economy,
safety, and performance.

Advanced
Powertrain Forum
Tuesday 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Manufacturers are currently planning and
developing vehicle powertrain portfolios which
will be introduced under the more stringent
greenhouse gas (GHG) and Corporate Average
Fuel Economy (CAFE) requirements starting in
2017. Meeting GHG/CAFE regulations, while
exceeding customer requirements, will likely
require vehicle manufacturers to deliver a
broad portfolio of powertrain technologies.
Whether it is stop/start, hybrid or electric;
or gasoline, diesel, bio-fuels, natural gas or
hydrogen, the industry has many options, but
also great uncertainty.
The decisions being made now, and the
investments to follow, will define the
powertrains the industry builds—and
consumers may buy in the coming years. The
2014 Advanced Powertrain Forum will include
representatives from vehicle manufacturers
and suppliers discussing technologies,
strategies and alternatives for meeting these
daunting challenges, now and in the future.
Onwards and
Upwards? The Sales
Forecast Workshop
Tuesday 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Sales growth in 2014 is expected by most
forecasters to be in the range of a 4 percent
increase, bringing the U.S. market to over 16
million unit sales for the first time since 2007.
This session will lead off with the perspective
of an automaker followed by forecasters from
major automotive associations and consulting
and financial firms. The panel will address
a host of topics tied directly to sales levels,
such as younger buyers, the popularity of new
technologies and options, shifts in segments,
and affordability to name a few—to provide
attendees critical information on what is
needed going forward in the market beyond just
mere capacity.

Attracting and
Retaining Talent in an
Era of Changing
Technology and
Demographics
Tuesday 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Attracting and retaining the best talent are
key differentiators for great companies.
Technology is redefining the motor vehicle,
and as a result the human resources needs
of the automotive industry are beginning to
merge closer to other technology sectors,
creating competition for talent from outside
the industry. No more is it just about getting
the best in the automotive sector; it is also
about getting the best to the automotive
sector—and keeping that talent.
As the environment in which the automotive
industry operates gets more technical and
more diverse—whether in terms of product,
workforce or the consumer, human resource
leaders will be challenged to keep the
current workforce engaged, and to attract
new talent to the industry. This session will
bring together representatives from leading
companies to discuss how the industry needs
to position itself to attract and keep the best
and brightest.

Managing the
Global Supply Chain
and Logistics
Automotive Strategy:
Pathways to Prosperity
Tuesday 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
The automotive industry finds itself racing
toward a future of great global opportunity
and competition; of spectacular technological
development, choice and risk; and, of rapidly
tightening regulation and changing customer
expectations. This session will highlight what
it will take for companies and their people to
succeed in this rapidly changing automotive
landscape. Key industry leaders will discuss
how they are positioning their organizations
to be profitable and prosperous in the coming
years.
Supply chain logistics is a vital, highly
complex, and rapidly changing part of the
automotive industry. Vehicle parts and
components must be delivered to assembly
plants within a precise time window—
either JIT, or minimal inventory—but many
factors can impact their successful delivery.
This session will explore challenges and
opportunities affecting the automotive value
stream today and in the future.
The implications of the changing global
supply chain are of great interest to all
automotive stakeholders, including vehicle
manufacturers, suppliers, third party logistics
providers, economic developers, and state and
local public officials. The panel will engage in
a thought-provoking discussion of how supply
chain planning and logistics are shaping the
industry’s manufacturing footprint.

Purchasing and Automaker/Supplier
Relations in Today’s Automotive Industry
Thursday 9:45 AM – 12:30 PM
As the automotive industry rebounds from the Great Recession, relations between automakers
and suppliers continue to be a focal point. Participants along the automotive value chain face
increasing pressure to meet the demand of rising production volumes coupled with limited
physical and financial resources. Though three years have passed since the natural disasters of
2011, that revealed the industry’s lack of supply chain visibility
and vulnerability, many issues are far
from resolved.
The session will be run as a series of focused conversations, with all panelists addressing a
preselected topic, followed by a brief panel discussion of the issue. In the months preceding MBS,
attendees registered for this session will be asked to respond electronically as to the subjects and
questions they would like the speakers to address. This lively, interactive approach will ensure
that those in the audience will derive maximum usefulness from the panel.
