Tata Technologies revs up vehicle-development activities

  • 16-Apr-2011 10:51 EDT

Engineering services company Tata Technologies is creating a special vehicle-development group because, as the new group's President, Kevin Fisher, said: "The next decade will see an ever-increasing demand for accelerated product development that also will need to incorporate more new technology than the auto industry has seen in 30 years." Tata Technologies’ Vehicle Programs & Development (VPD) group will include more than 200 engineers operating from four automotive engineering centers of excellence worldwide—Detroit, Coventry (U.K.), Pune (India), and Stuttgart (Germany). Fisher, who has 30-plus years' experience in vehicle program engineering, said VPD will use a multidimensional approach to vehicle engineering and development that will leverage the company's global delivery system and proprietary Knowledge Based Engineering platforms to develop products faster and more cost-effectively. Formation of the group was formally announced April 13 in Detroit during a Tata roundtable at the SAE 2011 World Congress. Exhibiting with Tata at the SAE Congress was electric-car maker Genovation Inc., one of the customers with which the new group will be working.
