The situation of industrial companies, especially from the automotive sector, can be characterized by heavily fluctuating market demands. Abruptly occurring phases with very low demands are followed by strongly increasing degrees of utilization. A purposeful reaction on the changing challenges towards companies is the application of new approaches for supply management and production, like Customize-to-Order and Build-to-Order. This paper shows how products contribute to the application of new supply chain approaches. Therefore, products are classified based on generic characteristics and the derived part classes are assigned to suitable production approaches. Consequently, it is presented, how the competitiveness of industrial companies can be enhanced by exploiting innovative product technologies.
