The fast lane to future: earlier, quicker, better
Car makers are changing their way of working: investments need to be reduced, equipment efficiency must be higher, implementation of more and more models in the same production system is a must and quality is the key.
The sooner OEM’s start cooperating with the line builders, the better they can reach the goal of matching product and process in the early engineering stage, thus resulting in more efficient and innovative production systems.
This is the meaning of the Simultaneous Engineering, one of the key activities of O.L.C.I. Engineering.
Some of the S.E. projects we have performed until today were focussed on entire factories, for which we have analysed and simulated the whole process chain, including production equipment, conveyor systems, material flow and logistics. In most cases we have also written the technical specifications for the OEM’s bidding process.
