In today’s automotive environment, agility and flexibility are key success factors. Faurecia began its digital manufacturing transformation in 2017 with the objective of improving industrial quality, efficiency and cost competitiveness through a reactive production and supply chain.
This industrial strategy has driven the adoption of smart automation tools and new digital management control solutions - transforming the assembly and handling of products, as well as the monitoring of operational performance.
By the end of 2021 over 2,500 smart robots and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) were in use across our plants. Data-driven analysis systems aim to further increase agility in plant management, improve predictive maintenance and boost efficiency in industrial processes. More than 15 data-driven use case projects were launched in 2021.
