Mini case and Technical Requirements

Mini Case 1.1:

Tata Motors According to the New Delhi-based National Council of Applied Economic Research over 56 million Indians earn over 4,400 US$ annually as of 2006. Against this background, a car priced at half annual income could be very popular. Hence, Tata Motors, a division of the country s second largest and oldest conglomerate, the Tata Group, wants to launch a US$2,200 car in 2008. In December 2006, the government of West Bengal approved the construction of a new factory near Kolkata. In less than 18 months, the first prototypes of a new low-cost car are scheduled to leave the production line. Tata plans to mass-produce parts and to ship partially or fully knocked-down kits to entrepreneurialrun garages. There, the cars will be assembled, and sold. This ‘People‘s Car‘, by 2008 known as the ‘Nano’, will have a rear engine, four or five doors and four wheels. To lower weight and cost, more composite materials will go into the body. The CEO, Mr Tata, wants to achieve his new goal by sourcing technology and materials from ‘wherever it makes sense‘. The engine management system will come from the US-automotive supplier, Delphi. Italian design help is coming from the Institute of Development in Automotive Engineering (I.D.E.A) Institute (which helped Tata develop its popular Indica sedan). The car project may be joined by the Italian auto manufacturer, Fiat, too. Due to increased raw material prices, the forecast price of the People s Car has risen to approximately 3,000 US$ before taxes in 2008. In addition, in 2008, Tata Motors INTRODUCTION TO INTERNATIONAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT 15 Mini Case Koster-3903-Ch-01:Banyard Sample.qxp 04/06/2009 6:34 PM Page 15 Copyrighted Material 16 INTERNATIONAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT was forced to transfer its first Nano production plant from West Bengal to Gujarat due to violent peasant protests.

  • Jazz combo
  • 30 catered dinners
