Smart factory: Audi shows intelligent production
- New Encounter magazine about the factory of the future
- Board of Management Member for Production Prof. Dr. Hubert Waltl: “We need qualified employees and IT experts in a fully connected production process”
- Vision: producing with competence islands instead of assembly lines
Humans and robots working hand in hand, car-body parts emerging from a 3D printer and cars driving in piloted mode from the assembly line: Audi is pursuing this vision of the factory of the future: the smart factory. In the Encounter magazine under that heading, the automobile manufacturer is now providing a wide-ranging insight on how intelligent Audi’s production processes already are and which leaps of innovation will occur in the coming years. Audi presented the publication on Friday at the company’s annual shareholders’ meeting.
