The main objective of this Master Thesis is to analyse and identify the main problems of the organisational structure and processes of international Tier-1 suppliers with regard to the implementation of the common parts strategy. The theoretical part starts with the introduction of the background and challenges of the common part strategy in the automotive industry. It describes the initial situation and the motivation of the Master Thesis. Furthermore, this section describes the methodological approach used to derive the result of this work. In the practical part of this Master Thesis, theoretically based information on a comprehensive concept for the handling of common parts will be further developed by a case study with an international automotive Tier-1 supplier. First, the processes that have the greatest impact through the implementation of the common parts strategy are identified. Afterwards these processes are roughly described to get an overview of the process contents. Using turtle diagrams, the processes are then depicted and in the further course with regard to the implementation of the common parts strategy evaluated. Derived from the results of the process evaluation a methodology for handling of common parts based on the example of the automotive industry will be developed and concrete practical recommendations for Tier-1 suppliers will be derive. The generated Business Process Model represents a standardized procedure and at the same time describes the respective project results and associated responsibilities for the handling of common parts. The aim is to increase project transparency and thus make modular projects easier to plan and control, which can reduce the project's risk.
