New cars today will be on the the road for about 20 years before they’re scrapped. But where will the repair parts come from to keep them running that long?

The question for carmakers is whether to build up inventories and store parts until they’re needed; tie up floor space by continuing to make the parts; or turn over production to others that are set up for smaller production runs, says Karina Morley, Ricardo’s commercial director, Automotive.

Morley says Ricardo can help carmakers analyze the options and choose the most efficient solution, including whether to use original tooling, switch to newer manufacturing techniques or even redesign the part itself.
