Our solutions differentiate our customers' vehicles. We anticipate customer needs and respond quickly with innovative and practical solutions.
We work collaboratively with customers to identify risks and challenges early in the development process. Through the use of predictive tools, we provide options to meet customer targets and ensure system optimization.
Knowledge-Based Manufacturing & Engineering Process
In 2008, we were an Automotive News PACE finalist for the Tenneco Knowledge-Based Manufacturing & Engineering (TEN-KBME) process.
This innovation enables our design engineers to work virtually across projects to share expertise, foster problem-solving, and improve the efficiency and quality of product development. It continuously captures and updates knowledge gleaned from Tenneco's most successful production and design processes. It uses predictive modeling based on best practices and allows engineering teams to prepare detailed plans in a matter of hours.
From initial concept, through development, testing and validation to process optimization and product introduction, we manage every step to provide our customers with increased efficiency, cost-effectiveness and superior product quality. We create a competitive advantage by expertly introducing and commercializing new technologies.
Tenneco's Product Introduction System uses program management processes built around customer requirements.
