The changes from single model production line to multi-model production line, and from traditional mass production plants to self adaptive production plant, integrate the vision of the MyCar project. MyCar vision is the long term sustainability of EU vehicle manufacturing, considering the customer as the core element and offering product personalisation, to achieve market differentiation against non-EU competitors.Project objectives include developments in customer orientation products, production flexibility and industry sustainability:
- The developments towards customer orientation products will increase number of variants produced in an assembly line by 30%, and will increase ratio of custom orders volume to full production volume by 15%;
- Production flexibility will increase production flexibility up to 5 models in the same body shop line, increase supply chain flexibility, will support operators in managing product variations, and increase reconfigurability of assembly equipment;
- Industry sustainability developments aim to reduce assembly costs by 15%, decrease investment costs by 20%, decrease the number of undetected quality defects during assembly process by 15%, shorten time to market by 15%, decrease in ramp-up time by 20%, and increase utilization at plant level by 10-15%.
