Margins in the car industry have been eroding for more than a decade. It’s time to fight back. But profitable growth is harder to achieve than in most other industries, chiefly because of the complexity of the supply chain and the sales model. The situation is further aggravated by the need to define, price, and manage an almost infinite array of configurations, options, spare parts, and after-sales service offerings.
