The Importance of Digital Transformation in the Automotive Industry

Meliha Koyuncuoğlu


Digital transformation in the automotive industry is undergoing a significant evolution through the use of technological innovations and in particular 3D printing technology. This paper has highlighted the complexity and importance of digital transformation in the automotive industry and discussed in detail the basic principles and advantages of 3D printing technology. By discussing the challenges, needs and adaptation requirements that the industry faces in the digitalization process, the application of 3D printers to automotive spare parts production and its current status and implications are examined. Issues such as cost and process efficiency, local production and supply chain optimization play an important role in addressing the economic and operational impacts of digital transformation in the automotive industry. In this context, reducing environmental impacts and adopting sustainability principles are critical in determining the future role of 3D printer technology. As a result, digital transformation in the automotive industry represents a vision of the future shaped by the use of 3D printing technology. The integration of these technological changes into the industry and a deep understanding of their impact is critical for companies to gain a competitive advantage, and therefore, advances in this field need to be closely monitored and understood.
