As technology develops at speed, there are clear opportunities to be reaped from globally connected manufacturing ecosystems. This session explored how automotive manufacturers are considering and using Integrated data - from the customer order through the supply chain to plants –to prioritise balance production and balance capacity to meet fast-changing market needs. Manufacturing and technology experts, David Threlfall, Nitin Rajurkar, Ravi Subramanyan and Vaclav Svub explain how production planning is evolving and can become more predictive and prescriptive.

  • How can carmakers navigate the maze of edge computing, robotics, AI and time sensitive networks, not to mention cloud and localised 5-G networks underpinning these systems?
  • Is it possible to future-proof their vast investments in fast-changing technological environment?
  • Will production planning ultimately be dictated by the end customer ordering, paying for and instigating the production process for their car directly via an app?
