Strong communication helps with the understanding of colleagues' views and experiences. Sketch and subsequent theme development receives input from both locations ensuring the greatest range of ideas can be explored and, not least, to ensure product proposition is appropriate to the intended market. Colour and trim concepts are developed with a global approach. Working as ' one team,' the colour and trim element is developed to ensure the market requirements are fully understood with local benchmark and trend analysis carried out jointly. The majority of design reviews, internally and with senior management, are held using Autodesk Showcase tools and up- to-date visualisation techniques. SAIC's Shanghai design studio recently installed a new visualisation suite. Post final design sign- off, the studio in Shanghai tends to lead the process, to aid interaction with the supply base and manufacturing locations. Exchange of design team staff ensures a clear understanding of market requirements and brand core values - and, maybe more importantly, an exchange of culture, ideas, and experience.
