Production and Logistics

For Audi, premium-quality automobiles mean high-quality car bodies – thanks to efficient production systems and new high-tech solutions. AUDI AG has one of the most flexible and efficient production systems in the entire automotive industry: the Audi Production System (APS), which is based on the principles of cycle, flow, pull and perfection. Audi systematically applies these principles in production and throughout the company, resulting in short cycle times, low inventories and large gains in productivity. A major focus here is on the continuous improvement process (CIP), because companies that neglect continuous improvement risk their long-term success. Increasing digitalization is paving the way for the smart factory – the intelligent, digitally connected production facility. New high-tech solutions in manufacturing are further increasing the already very high level of quality, while making assembly work easier and resulting in better ergonomics.

    Body development at Audi – innovation, quality and precision

    Audi is writing a new chapter in its successful history of lightweight design. For the coming generation of the Audi A8, an intelligent mix of four materials will be used in the body structure for the first time – more than in any of the brand’s previous production models. The luxury sedan is thus once again rightfully claiming its role as an innovation driver in automotive lightweight design. A tradition that dates back to the year 1994, when the A8 with its aluminum unitary body in Audi Space Frame (ASF) design caused quite a sensation.

    It’s good for the environment and employees: Audi trials new sealing process at the paint shop

    At its paint shop in Győr, Hungary, Audi is testing a new method of body sealing. Before a car is given its paint finish, a paste-like sealing material is applied to areas such as the weld seams. This improves vehicle acoustics, guards against corrosion and seals off the interior. The new method grants complete freedom in determining the thickness and width of material to be applied. This makes it possible to apply the sealing material more quickly and with supreme precision.
