Presentation: Automotive Recalls 

Have you ever experienced a recall on your automobile? Dr. John Verghese will discuss Automotive recalls that have impacted companies and the customers involved. He will examine the antecedents of the speed to recall—assessed via National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) investigation time and manufacturers’ time to recall— and, subsequently, examine the impact of the speed to recall on recall completion ratio, a measure that captures the effectiveness of the recall process. His discussion will highlight factors that affect the speed and effectiveness of the recall process while demonstrating the significance of reducing NHTSA investigation time and time to recall in improving recall completion ratio.
