Pocket-Lint article “Future batteries, coming soon: Charge in seconds, last months and power over the air,” Link: https://www.pocket-lint.com/gadgets/news/130380-future-batteries-coming-soon-charge-in-seconds-last-months-and-power-over-the-air (Links to an external site.)

Please read Chapters 6-7 and the Pocket-Lint article before answering the questions below.

Questions ———————————————————————-

  1. Please select a battery technology from the Pocket-Lint article that you believe could be used to a battery that outperforms current Lithium-Ion batteries for electronic vehicles. Explain why your choice is the best alternative to consider. Would an automobile manufacturer consider this purchase a commercially available product, a commercially available product that needs modification, or a commercial product that is not available and requires customization? Why?
  2. What type of solicitation would you recommend for evaluating suppliers of batteries of the new technology that you selected in Question 1 (IFB, RFQ, RFI, Sealed Bid, Other)? Why?
  3. The article discusses a new technology based on solid-state technology for batteries that could radically disrupt the lithium-ion battery industry. Please describe how automobile manufacturers could evaluate potential suppliers of solid-state batteries using a weighted scorecard (Table 7.7). Please provide a weighted scorecard with at least five criteria for suppliers of solid-state batteries.
  4. Please provide an insightful question about evaluating suppliers of new technology such as solid-state batteries for automobile production.
