The Smart is unquestionably an innovative car. Smartville, the site where it is manufactured, is equally innovative. The factory has been custom-built to optimise production flows, and it houses about ten companies which are partners in the Smart project. They are each in charge of a module of the car and they work together on the assembly line. These partners were chosen by the principal, Micro Compact Car (MCC), a subsidiary of DaimlerChrysler, not only for their professionalism, but also for their innovative skills and their ability to produce value for money. However, this situation of autonomous but interdependent companies, living together under one roof, only works thanks to constant efforts by each company involved carrying out regulatory controls and assuming individual responsibility.

Organizer : Ecole de Paris du ManagementThe École de Paris du management was created in 1993. Under its auspices, researchers and professionals talk about subjects which open the way for discussion ensuring a high quality of oral and written work. Although short-term concerns are the basis for these exchanges, the approach adopted reflects long-term issues. These include helping change the views which researchers, participants and public opinion have of the way in which private and public affairs are conducted
