Assembly Engineering Insight @ Jaguar Land Rover

Managing complexity in multi-propulsion production systems

In cooperation with Jaguar Land Rover, Automotive Circle is hosting an Insight conference at the British car maker’s new Slovakian site in Nitra.

With an investment volume of 1.4 billion euros, the state-of-the-art production facility in Nitra marks the latest step in Jaguar Land Rover’s global expansion strategy. The new 300,000 m² plant with an annual production capacity of 150,000 vehicles currently manufactures two models: Land Rover Discovery and Land Rover Defender. Both models and their different versions and drive types run on the same line, with the production volume of each version being fully flexible.
Looking to the future, the plant is designed to be highly flexible and prepared to handle the increasing complexity resulting from the requirements of multi-variant and multi-propulsion production processes.

Faster innovation cycles, digitalization, automation, and new mobility concepts demand more flexible production facilities and digital work processes within the automotive industry. The Corona crisis together with raw material shortages and bottlenecks in chip supply have demanded precisely this flexibility from manufacturers and suppliers. Visitors to this year’s Automotive Circle conference on Assembly Engineering will find out how OEMs and suppliers in the assembly sector are dealing with these challenges and whether the companies are up to the tasks ahead.

In cooperation with:
