Process operations are visualized in real time, making control intervention possible, if required! The production of pre-series vehicles in the automotive industry represents the starting point for a new generation of vehicles. The location for these trials is the pre-series center. What exactly happens there? Technological innovations are tested. Just like in an experimental laboratory, all production processes are tested right up to the final start of series production. Component and production technologies are closely scrutinized. One of the main objectives of pre-series development is to ensure the economic efficiency of production. Preliminary considerations regarding purchase and logistics are, therefore, also part of the concept phase. In this planning phase, it becomes abundantly clear that the transparency of all results and decisions is the key to success and to the adherence of exact schedules.
