Excursion to an Austrian Racing Car Manufacturer and a top Engineering Company



On October 8, 2015 the participants of the 6th Professional MBA Program visited KTM Sportcar GmbH and AVL List GmbH in Graz.

KTM is an Austrian off-road and street motorcycles producer. Beside of the motorcycle production in cooperation with KISKA Design, AUDI and Dallara KTM developed KTM X-Bow - a sports car for road and race use - which was introduced at Geneva Motor Show 2008. In the factory in Graz the participants could see the logistics and production of the X-Bow. It was interesting to see the logistics of the in Germany produced monocoque which is composed of carbon fibers. For the transport of high value carbon-fibre parts specially designed containers are used. The compact production line and its quality assurance system keep the high quality of the cars.

AVL List GmbH is one of leading companies for the new engine and powertrain development. The company has three core businesses, e.g. Development of Powertrain Systems, Simulation, and Testing and Instrumentation Systems. During the tour participants can visit the acoustic chamber, engine testing facility, and battery testing system. At the combustion measurement equipment the complete combustion process and thermodynamic process were visible. This can be used to find a right solution for the optimization of the combustion development.

The excursion gave participants a good opportunity to know how Austrian High Tech companies run their business successfully.

The participants and the program management thank to two companies for the tour and fruitful discussions.
