At the 2020 Assembly Engineering conference the Automotive Circle bestowed again the Assembly Engineering Innovation Award.
We are very pleased at this opportunity to honor the best and most inspiring innovations from the serial production of leading automotive manufacturers.

The individualisation of a vehicle essentially takes place during assembly. As product diversification continues to increase, alternative drive types are increasingly being introduced and the number of units fluctuates due to demand, the assembly planners of global OEMs in particular are under pressure to make final assembly fit for the future in terms of agility and flexibility. In order to master the increasing demands, manufacturing processes are being optimized and new digital technologies are being used.

The Assembly Engineering conference addressed these issues and provided answers to the most pressing questions that determine the success of assembly using best-practice reports from manufacturers, suppliers and institutes. Leading manufacturers presented solutions to make their manufacturing structures more flexible, as well as concrete applications of digital technologies (such as augmented reality solutions), planning tools and the use of artificial intelligence in manufacturing. Reports on quality testing and commissioning of new vehicle concepts and technologies rounded off the programme.

Key topics of the conference:

  •  Future-proof assembly: flexible and fit for new drive types
  •  New smart factory technologies
  • AI meets Final Assembly: How final assembly profits from artificial intelligence
  • Digital planning and ergonomics
  • Quality Control and Commissioning
