A world-renowned automobile manufacturer had to produce 60 units of interior decoration parts for their new cars. Requirements included instrument panel, centre console, door panels and others. The first batch of 20 units had to be delivered in 4 weeks, while the remainder needed to be completed in 8 weeks. Traditional injection moulding would require 12 to 14 weeks of development time and millions of dollars.
