The administrators who belong to Cross Function Team at the Pilot Center coordinate the conflicting interests among functional departments in Hyundai Motor Company. With the success of Pilot Center, Hyundai Motor Company has saved hugh amount of cost, enhancing its quality level as well as manufacturability.

The characteristics of new product development process in Hyundai Motor Company have been due to the adversarial industrial relations as well as the hierarchical culture of organization.
