The automotive industry is currently undergoing an unprecedented transformation, driven by advancements in electrification, sustainability, digitalisation and swiftly evolving consumer demands. Navigating these changes requires collaboration, resilience and an unwavering commitment to innovation. Bringing together the experts on the frontlines, AMS is helping to launch a new event that will bridge the gap between the design and production ecosystems: Design4Production. Taking place on 15 May in Munich.

Promising to be a key event for the automotive industry, Design4Production will explore transformative strategies and advancements shaping the future of vehicle design, development and manufacturing, including across product development, prototypes, materials and vehicle architectures.

Central to the conference is a focus on innovative approaches for breaking down silos in design, R&D and manufacturing planning. Moving beyond traditional models, the agenda sessions will shed light on co-creative collaboration, exploring how designers and manufacturing engineers at OEMs, suppliers, engineering and production specialists work together to realise new potential, for example in bringing new EV and connected technology to market.

Attendees can expect a deep dive into the dynamics of agile design-for-manufacturing strategies and the use of cutting-edge technologies across design, engineering, prototype and serial production, including virtual reality, simultaneous engineering, simulation and artificial intelligence. Design and manufacturing experts will discuss how to implement sustainable, circular materials and recycling loops from concept through to production. The event will also explore how manufacturing and design are both influenced by, and influence vehicle platforms, architectures and exteriors.

Design4Production will host an impressive lineup of speakers, featuring prominent voices from across the industry who will deliver invaluable insights and much-needed solutions. Among them are Matt Weaver, Vice President of Nissan Design Europe; Martin Uhlarik, Head of Global Design at Tata Motors; Gustavo Guerra, Vice President of Strategic Product Planning at Volvo Group; Amko Leenarts, Design Director at Ford Europe; Armand Nowak, Group Manager, Planning and Strategy, European Design Centre at Hyundai Motor Europe Technical Center, and many more. 

Beyond the interactive agenda sessions, Design4Production presents the opportunity for the automotive design, engineering and manufacturing community to convene, network and actively engage in discussions that are working to shape the future of the industry. Don’t miss the opportunity to join over 200 automotive designers and engineers, manufacturing engineers and plant leaders this May, along with senior decision-makers representing Stellantis, GM, Ford, Rivian, BMW, Volkswagen and more who have already registered.
