Manufacturing technology and logistics in Győr
Manufacturing technology and logistics in Győr are process-chain focused. The manufactured parts leave the line exactly where they are needed for assembling the engines. This avoids long paths, so the supply of parts to the assembly areas and the transport of the assembled components take place quickly and directly. The internal material flow is controlled so that only those parts are available that are directly required in the assembly process. This avoids expensive interim storage and enhances productivity.
The transport of materials, parts and engines between Győr and Ingolstadt takes place mainly by railway. The supplied parts and components come from Ingolstadt, while the finished engines and automobiles are transported from Győr to Ingolstadt.
The railway network constructed in the context of the plant expansion is eight kilometers long; within the plant premises, Audi Hungaria extended the railway network by 30 percent.
The company’s CKD (completely knocked down) activities have also increased. In 2011, the CKD group moved into its own hall. Business partners overseas can order CKD engines for local assembly.
