Strategies in Car Body Engineering 2018

Incl. car body presentations and a focus session on electric car

Let’s talk strategy – and its successful implementation

In order to successfully meet the challenges that car body engineering faces today, car makers need to employ a strategic approach which covers a variety of aspects, from choosing a suitable material strategy to integrating corresponding, state of the art joining technologies, from optimizing production processes to implementing adequate smart factory concepts, from ensuring a time and cost efficient production to maintaining flexibility when handling an ever-growing number of model variants.

This conference focuses on all key issues in global car body development, planning and production, including:

  • global production concepts, platform and modularization strategies
  • applied material strategies
  • new or optimized production processes
  • the implementation of specific production technologies
  • field reports and "lessons learned” based on current body concepts
  • smart factory solutions in the body shop
  • predictive maintenance


New: focus session on electrification

With the current increase in EV variants (including PHEV) which need to be integrated into existing or new production lines and facilities, OEM follow various electrification strategies, which have a direct impact on car body engineering.

In the context of the rising number of EV, what are current strategic approaches to

  • lightweight design concepts
  • material strategies
  • vehicle architectures
  • production processes
  • collaboration concepts with other departments (from design to final assembly)

in the body shop?

Let’s talk about it! We look forward to seeing you in Bad Nauheim in March.


The conference is aimed at

Body construction engineers from international automotive manufacturers with strategic responsibilities in (pre)development, planning and production, as well as relevant system suppliers, within the whole process chain "painted car body", from press plant to  the body shop and paint shop.
