Author Hanns Peter Becker (Partner) focuses in is White Paper on how the German car industry needs to react to demographic change. There is no area of society that will not experience its effects, and it goes without saying that the work of the nation’s automotive development departments is no exception to this. Might there soon even be a shortage of qualified experts, meaning that today’s development engineers will still have to speed round the test circuits at 70? We examine the effects of this development in conjunction with the birth of engineering goliaths in the emerging economy and offer recommendations on which measures the German automotive industry can take to respond to these challenges.
