Feature:  “Task Integration in Automobile Manufacturing and Market Supply”.

Task Integration in Automobile Manufacturing and Market Supply: Insights into Complexity Automobiles are ubiquitous today, but a large part of the general public (including motor vehicle enthusiasts) is likely not wholly aware of the broad-ranging multiplicity of “sectoral” tasks that are integrated into their manufacture and market promotion. This feature article presents an overview of the principal processes involved, from product planning, design, assembly, testing and manufacture to advertising and sales, and examines them individually in dedicated sections. The article’s aim is to underscore the appeal of automobiles of all types by deepening readers’ understanding of the full panoply of activities that contribute to their production and delivery to consumers.
