Digital Enterprise Virtual Summit – On demand recordings for the automotive industry

Maximum flexibility in the automotive industry

Automotive industry is still focusing on conveyor belts and rigid processes, which were developed and built before the beginning of production. However, there’s an increasing demand for individualized products and production with a lot size of 1. In the video you’ll learn how Porsche together with Siemens was able to design the production of the Taycan in a flexible and space-saving way that a customized and individual manufacturing is ensured.

The most holistic digital twin

The holistic approach of the Digital Enterprise for creating digital twins in the automotive industry offers tangible benefits: You can substantially reduce the number of prototypes you need during the development of new cars. It becomes possible to predict the performance of the production unit and the products themselves. And it ensures you can produce what your customers expect in terms of individualization and drive concepts.

The value of the digital twin in automotive industry

The dynamic development in the automotive industry is continuously increasing and confronts companies with new challenges. Worldwide demand for electric cars is on the rise, while the driving public – also those of us unwilling to make the move away from conventional drive systems – dreams of ever more individually designed cars.

AI in automotive production for higher efficiency

Automotive production is becoming smart. By interlinking production with artificial intelligence (AI) technologies – even during production.

 

Thanks to an innovative combination of digital methods and intelligent applications, it is now possible to automate processes that were previously difficult or impossible to automate. With the help of artificial intelligence, robots are learning to recognize damage to car bodies – and thus to produce even better in the future.

Digital twins can also go electric

Global demand for electric vehicles is growing. However, customers still demand conventional drivetrains and increasingly more custom design options. To meet these challenges, digital twins can help to improve efficiency and flexibility.

Taking autonomous vehicles to the fast lane

Autonomous vehicles will revolutionize the transportation industry like no other change since the invention of the automobile. Creating these vehicles demands agile, model-based development with integrated data flows and a heavy reliance on software-based simulation capabilities. Siemens PLM Software offers a full set of autonomous vehicle solutions for all key technical domains – from chip design to full vehicle validation.

The efficient way to mobilize your production

Many assembly applications require continuous transportation of components between construction and assembly stations, different assembly halls, or from assembly hall to the end destination. Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are used to transport components and ensure a reliable relocation.
