LEIPZIG -- Michael Macht, Porsche's board member in charge of production and logistics, says the sports car maker is adopting new methods in materials management and work organization.
He also says new logistics opportunities are arising from cooperation with Volkswagen.
Macht, 48, has been a member of the management board since 1998.
After his university training in mechanical engineering and four years at the Fraunhofer Institute, Macht arrived at Porsche as an engine planner. He later worked as consultant to Porsche CEO Wendelin Wiedeking on Project P.O.L.E., which pursued process improvement through supplier integration.
Macht spoke with Automobilwoche Reporter Henning Krogh.
