Production goes digital.
The production process for Dingolfing’s top model is supported by a range of innovative solutions. For example, when special and less common equipment parts are ordered, like the rear centre console, employees in the corresponding production area are pre-warned via vibrating smartwatches, which then supplies the relevant instructions.
Data glasses are also used in training new staff. When learning new work steps, virtual assistance is projected into the employee’s field of vision. This enables rapid, sustainable learning in pre-assembly of complex components like the rear light. This augmented-reality application is used at assembly training centres and constantly refined. Digitalisation is now well embedded in the production cycle and making further inroads throughout the wider operation, from assembly supplies to transportation of goods.
