Production planning for automotive manufacturers - plan, simulate, and optimize digitally

In parallel to the design of the vehicle, the planning of the production process takes place.

Production planning tasks

Industry Software from Siemens provides a unique advantage connecting product development to production planning to virtually simulate and optimize production.

Manufacturing planning

Manufacturing planning

Vehicle manufacturers often struggle to identify the relevance of engineering change orders for their manufacturing processes. The Siemens manufacturing planning solution provides a seamless alignment between the engineering bill of materials (BOM), manufacturing BOM and the manufacturing bill of process (BOP). In this way a quick overview how a change of marterial can affect manufacturing process is possible.

Manufacturing quality validation

Manufacturing quality validation

Quality control must start well before the actual production of vehicles in the assembly lines. Automakers have to make sure that manufacturing processes conform to the design intent by ensuring that dimensional and tolerance specifications are achievable before starting production. The Siemens quality solution tools aid in the adoption of lean manufacturing and Six Sigma programs by making it easy to share best practices and standardizing quality variables across the enterprise. This helps reduce the causes of scraps and rework.
