Gain the flexibility and speed needed to produce multiple models and variations to meet changing consumer demands.
Quick reactions and changeovers. Flexible equipment tooling. Constant design refreshes. Multiple models, in multiple variations, are being produced at a single location to meet changing consumer demands. More choices and demands lead to a complex manufacturing environment with the potential for increased errors and costs.
Our control and information solutions for automotive assembly can help you reach the flexibility and speed needed to compete in the global marketplace.
Our technology can help you with specific tooling needs and address critical auto body assembly concerns including:
Our technology can help you control process parameters and address critical paint shop concerns including:
Automotive assembly operations must adopt flexible processes to accommodate multiple choices and options. Our technology can help you address flexible manufacturing concerns including:
As vehicles become more advanced, better connected, and “smarter,” consumers want the latest features and styles. This means regular refreshes to incorporate the latest automotive safety, fuel efficiency, performance, designs, and options. Any vehicle refresh will affect the people, processes, equipment, and automation in your operations. Changes might be small, or they can require retooling, supply change revisions, station changes, and more.
Our AutoSuite™ manufacturing execution system (MES) software can coordinate manufacturing tasks and provide real-time operations intelligence. The software allows you to better manage the complexities of producing multiple vehicles. These systems can help you optimize quality-control processes, better manage component tracking and material flow, and improve performance management.
Our Integrated Architecture® system helps provide the safety and communication infrastructure, processing performance, and data structures necessary to achieve desired manufacturing throughput, coordination, and quality.
Our portfolio of safety products, systems, and services help you comply with current and emerging standards. Reduce lost-time accidents, enhance workplace safety, and ultimately improve employee morale and productivity.
Your engineering team understands the inherent challenges in controlling energy usage. Our domain expertise and industrial energy management professionals will help streamline your processes to help improve energy utilization.
As plants drive toward 100% capacity utilization, you must protect and optimize your operations while negotiating the complexities that come with producing more vehicles in more variations, all on the same line.
The key is a devotion to continuous improvement in your people, processes, and equipment while maintaining safety across your operations.
