Decentralised Vehicle Manufacture a New Trend

Decentralised Design Drives Growth in MFT Market in 2013

“So in part, the consumer is now indirectly in control, dictating where
new plants should be built and what cars should look and drive like.
Decentralisation of both production and design centres will become
a common requirement moving forwards and businesses must be able to
exchange information 24/7 across both internal and external users across
the extended enterprise.”

Honda is beginning to decentralise operations; Ford and GM already have this practice in place.  Perhaps this trend is moving towards totally decentralised systems and a more open-source future for automakers? I can hope, at least.
