Production engineering for automotive manufacturers – efficiently developing and automatizing flexible manufacturing facilities

After the production is planned, the PLC/NC code has to be created. A simulation helps to detect any inconsistency even before start of production.

Production engineering tasks

Today’s automotive market requires the production of high volume of personalized and customized cars. How can vehicle manufacturers engineer the flexible production environment that is needed to respond to this challenge? How can engineering times be minimized and production lines made more flexible? How can the costs of production and the time-to-market be reduced?

Automation engineering

TIA Portal

Engineering efficiency is crucial. Siemens seamlessly integrates controllers, distributed I/O, HMI, drives, motion control and motor management into a single engineering environment – TIA Portal. TIA Portal opens the door to the world of Totally Integrated Automation.

The Siemens comprehensive industrial communications solutions allow efficient integration of all company areas into one coherent system.

Demo: NX CAM for machinery

Siemens offers software solutions for an integrated production engineering workflow. With NX CAM getting NC programming right from the first time and by simulating the tool paths and generated NC code avoiding costly collisions in real production mode is now possible. To avoid scrap due to inconsistant programming Siemens created the Shop Floor Connection. It delivers the right resources information from planning  to the shop floor. With SINUMERIK Integrate connecting machineries even to higher-level IT systems at the company level is possible.
