Ford Working on Global Platform Consolidation
One of the main focus points when Alan Mullaly took over was to ensure consolidation of platform.
Later, Ford has done a great job of ensuring that all the platforms are worked on and consolidation where ever possible was done.
Few years back, Ford had set a target of having 11 Global platforms by 2014. People were skeptical about this but Ford ensured all were proven wrong.
Today Ford has gone a step ahead and got aggressive and announced that Ford will be having 9 Global platform and that too get this done by 2013 (by the time Alan retires). It would be interesting what all vehicle lines would be stopped owing to this.
Additionally, it would be interesting to know what will end up coming to India.
