The paradigm shift in global sourcing of transmission components is achieved by developing a part-classification methodology based on a new model of core-competence analysis. The result is shaped by the empirical data analysis of the core-competence and cost-structure analysis. This paradigm shift is defined by a move from local sourcing of the European automotive industry to global sourcing, shaped by modern management philosophies, at the beginning of the new millennium, and then back to "Local for Local" sourcing, due to bad experiences with the quality performance of low cost country suppliers. The latter leads to massively untapped potential, through an intensive analysis of potential global sourcing-capable commodities. The goal is to create a portfolio of optimal global-sourcing-capable components, thus responding to the precarious changes in market structures throughout the industry in global purchasing in recent years. However, no overarching, general, commodity-independent rules can be established; rather, a deep analysis of cost structures and technological requirements is required. This initial situation requires that the structures of the most important commodities be examined in detail using a core competence and cost-structure analysis to develop optimal sourcing strategies for these commodities and derive an optimal and strategically-oriented purchasing organisation from them, in order to contribute to a significant improvement in the Group's earnings. With regard to the scope, it should be noted that this method is generally suitable for purchased parts in the automotive industry, but the basic data comes from tier 1 transmission suppliers or OEMs with their own transmission production. The basic methodology as well as the method developed here is widely applicable. However, the definition of the individual and relevant parameters is primarily characterised by specific data for transmission components and the underlying manufacturing processes.
