Achieve a rapid plant evolution with Smart Manufacturing solutions

Reading time: 17 minutes
Launching the next generation of vehicles while maintaining current production is challenging as it forces automotive manufacturers to develop new operations while trying to protect profits and quality. Those who want to master the future of mobility must deliver faster results with fewer resources for a quicker, more successful launch.  In this white paper, discover how OEMs and suppliers can transform automotive production planning and processes with our Smart Manufacturing solutions for rapid factory evolution, featuring case studies from BAIC BJEV, Porsche, and Volkswagen.

Manage automotive manufacturing complexity with a rapid plant evolution

Maximizing profitability involves improving overall efficiency through standardization and reimagining plant automation. This includes a robust data management backbone, leveraging standardized automation libraries to get assembly lines up and running faster while ensuring all production processes run smoothly. By doing this, experience has shown that standardization can reduce automotive manufacturing costs by up to half on average.

Reduce waste and improve quality with digital twin-driven smart manufacturing

Manufacturers realize they must optimize costs and produce sustainable products using sustainable methods. By incorporating multi-system engineering, data analysis, and machine learning capabilities, digital twins can validate the impact of design changes before implementation, which helps to eliminate bottlenecks. This offers essential insights for performance and improved efficiencies to reduce development time and improve quality and energy efficiency.

Upgrade and modernize existing equipment without building a new facility

Our open and scalable Smart Manufacturing solutions allow automotive OEMs and suppliers to make better decisions based on real-time insight and modernize legacy equipment faster. They enable the evolution of an assembly line or an entire plant by upgrading and modernizing existing equipment with smart sensors and software. By doing so, manufacturers can use advanced technologies to enable actional production insights and analysis without the tremendous cost of building a new facility.
