ANALYSIS OF FEDERAL STIMULI TO DEVELOPMENT OF NEW TECHNOLOGY BY SUPPLIERS TO AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURERS. AN EXPLORATORY STUDY OF BARRIERS AND FACILITATORS
The role of suppliers to the auto industry in promoting innovation is explored. Thirty-two innovations are investigated, and information on their success/failure, area of impact, and key decision points is generated. Based on this data base, barriers and facilitators of the innovation process are identified. The most frequently mentioned barriers to innovation are: federal regulations, cost, technical reliability, market demand, and vehicle integrity impact. Identified as common facilitators are: federal laws, the incentive of solving a persistent problem, recognition of market potential, direct government R&D, and the technological capability of suppliers.
