In the traditional, asset-driven manufacturing model, companies buy materials and equipment, manufacture a standard set of products, and then sell them to as many customers as possible, hindering innovation and design optimization.

Alcoa business model works closely with customers and outside suppliers to develop tailored solutions that address specific needs with flexible technologies, materials, and volumes in a reduced time frame. Our experience with Ferrari is a prime example of this business model in action:

Materials, design, and engineering expertise
Solution tailored to custorner needs
Outsource select components
Co-located manufacturing
Integrated production flow
