Automotive manufacturers and suppliers are under constant pressure to shorten lead times while reducing costs. Consumer demand for more models and options add increasing complexity to the challenge—not just in manufacturing and distribution, but throughout the business. 

In an industry where success is reliant on the ability to quickly manage complex changes, the risks of making mistakes are enormous. How can changes be made with the certainty that they will achieve their intended results? For many of the world’s most successful automotive manufacturers and suppliers, Lanner’s predictive simulation technology provides the clarity and confidence in their decision making by allowing ‘what-if’ scenarios to be fully tested before committing time, resources and money.

Change Management

Introducing change into the manufacturing process can often reveal unanticipated complexity and consequences. To mitigate the risks associated with change, automobile manufacturers look to Lanner’s WITNESS predictive simulation technology to thoroughly test and experiment with proposed changes before committing the time and resources required to implement those changes. By testing proposed changes in the virtual world first, decision makers have the confidence that new changes and investments will deliver to standards and meet customer needs and demands.

New Facility Design

As consumer demand for greater diversity in car derivatives grows, automobile manufacturers must be aware of how they will meet those demands when they expand or plan new facilities. Simulation is an ideal solution for modelling, testing and validating proposed facility designs before any investment is committed. The simulation model can be used to experiment with various design configurations, optimising performance and analysing how each will measure against particular KPIs. Additionally, models can be built with the future in mind, testing how each design will handle future growth and their ability to provide flexibility to handle changes in requirements. This level of insight ensures that the right design is selected and provides confidence that the new facility will meet demand and perform as intended. 

A Flexible Solution

Lanner’s WITNESS Horizon technology offers the flexibility required of the automotive industry to simulate and optimize everything from new facility design to production to supply chain management. Additionally, the visual nature of simulation modelling allows for improved communication throughout the organization, ensuring that all stakeholders understand the manufacturing processes, data and how they affect one another.
