European carmakers face huge uncertainty even as they must upgrade plants for a new generation of vehicles and technology. But amidst so much change, OEMs and suppliers are increasingly leveraging the huge scale of production data across all stages of the value chain, from bodyshop through assembly and logistics.

Used effectively and with clear actions, this data can help mitigate disruption, reduce errors and downtime, help workers make decisions and speed up factory planning and launch: all essential in OEMs staying competitive and ramping up electric vehicle and battery output.

In this opening panel discussion, we spoke with data and engineering experts from Europe’s most complex manufacturers, including Audi and BMW, to discuss the tremendous opportunities in data analytics, artificial intelligence and digital simulation. Learn more about how processing, sharing and standardising data across the stakeholders will power next-generation vehicle production.

Following the panel discussion, host Christopher Ludwig caught up with Rüdiger Eck to continue the conversation.
