The increasing innovation pressure on German car manufacturers leads to a significantly higher model and variant diversity whereas model cycles and development times decrease. Subsequently, the number of successive series ramp-ups also increases. The aim of this contribution is to determine potential risk factors, which jeopardise the technical and economic success of a series ramp-up from the perspective of Parts Maturity Management. This knowledge shall be used to develop strategic guidelines in order to anticipate or to manage their negative effects in a more effective way.
