Assembly Engineering 2020

Alternative drive types and the trend towards ever more individual product variants ensure that the call for flexible assembly and logistics processes can be heard ever louder.  In order to increase the flexibility of final assembly and optimize the efficiency of the individual process steps, assembly increasingly relies on new technologies, data exchange and connected production systems.

At the next Automotive Circle conference on Assembly Engineering taking place in Bad Nauheim/Germany on 18-19 February 2020, international experts on final assembly discuss these topics and provide answers to the crucial questions that determine the success of assembly.

Key topics of the conference:

  • Current challenges: Complexity management and flexibility: Control of increasing requirements and increasingly complex assembly processes, design of flexible assembly structures and adaptive processes, managing of increasing variety of variants, new approaches in the line balancing of flexible assembly lines, management (strong) variations in the number of pieces etc.
  • Digital transformation in assembly: Virtual assembly and the use of digital twins, strategies for the (safe) networking of machines and production plants, current automation examples, collaborating robots, digital helpers and assistance systems, use of digital worker information systems, new augmented reality solutions, AI in assembly, etc.
  • Concepts for the assembly of the next vehicle generation (C.A.S.E. - connected, autonomous, shared and electric): New approaches in the assembly of electric vehicles and battery assembly, integration of electric vehicles into existing manufacturing structures, automation solutions for e-mobility assembly, testing and commissioning of electric vehicles, approaches to quality control of autonomous vehicles, etc.
  • Assembly logistics / efficient intralogistics: Logistics planning, new material flow concepts and strategies for parts provision, kitting, optimization of picking and parts logistics, use of new smart factory technologies in assembly logistics, etc.
  • Human Factors Engineering - the worker in final assembly: Health-friendly design of assembly workstations, new technological solutions for ergonomics optimization, etc.
