He cites the case of the Ford Transit, which in 2006 was specified with only one starter motor reference. This resulted in high volumes and high batch sizes for new manufacture – yet by 2011 four starter motor options were available, thus reducing batch sizes and splitting volumes. “Will a supplier of new units introduce all four?” Hood continues. “Is making four lower batch size variants commercially viable for the tooling and production costs of new units, if most of the volume centres around two parts?”
