||The effects of new cost-saving measures by car manufacturers on work organization, conditions of work and personnel qualifications in the parts supply industry are described. Logistics, quality assurance, development and production of new products were studied. The role of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing was taken into consideration. Conditions in Germany were compared with those in Japan. Information was obtained from the literature and from case studies of 2 car manufacturers and 87 suppliers in Germany. It was found that suppliers are increasingly under pressure concerning their inability to come to terms with new technologies, their use of outdated machinery, their inability to deliver in time, the high rate of faulty products delivered and the low qualification of their personnel.
