During the last fifteen years the structural changes of the automotive industry have modified the technology and the business organization of the large automakers and their suppliers in many ways. This paper analyzes the main results of a survey to 63 automotive suppliers in the Turkish automotive supplier industry. Nearly half of the companies cooperate with customers, suppliers, and technological centers to improve their production processes but only three companies cooperate with their customers in component development and design which indicates an under involvement of the surveyed companies with the automotive manufacturers.
