The world's largest multi OEM contract manufacturer produces a wide range of different vehicle models at one location: from the legendary Mercedes-Benz G-Class to the BMW 5 Series and Z4 to the new models Toyota GR Supra and Jaguar E-PACE and I-PACE (Car of the Year 2019).

With the production of vehicles with conventional drive types to plug-in hybrids and the purely electrically driven I-PACE, Magna Steyr demonstrates that the company masters the agile production of different drive types on a single line and is thus already successfully mastering a central challenge for tomorrow's production.

Discuss the following questions at the conference:

  • How can different models, variants and drive types be manufactured as flexibly and efficiently as possible in one factory?
  • Which requirements have to be fulfilled in the production of electric vehicles and their integration into existing assembly structures?
  • How must logistics supply processes and transport systems be structured to support agile assembly?
  • Which intelligent technologies from the "smart factory" are available to optimize the agility of assembly?
