MAN and the University of Applied Science Upper Austria Design a Truck Assembly Line using ESI’s IC.IDO

Research output: Contribution to magazineArticle

Abstract

MAN Truck & Bus Österreich AG strived to create a more efficient design for a truck assembly line. They were interested in anticipating the assembly sequence, looking to improve the assembly process significantly and make the operations faster and more efficient. MAN was able to simplify the set-up process of the assembly line while also making it run more efficiently than ever before. This was possible because the designers, operators, and subcontractors were able to exchange views about a 3D prototype before the manufacturing facility was in place. They were also able to reduce the time to launch and the cost by bringing line testing operations down from two weeks to one single day.
