Contact Vendor
Feature New Record

A growing range of models and ever-shorter development cycles increase the demands on the manufacturing process. As a result, tracking vehicles inside and outside manufacturing facilities is essential for delay-free quality assurance and to provide transparency throughout all manufacturing steps in the automotive industry.

AUDI AG currently manufactures the A3, A4, A5 and Q5 models along with associated variants at the Ingolstadt plant. In order to improve the overview of the intricate interconnections, AUDI AG intends to support the production process with a vehicle tracking system that can be integrated seamlessly into the Audi infrastructure.

In co-operation with AUDI, IBM® and IBM Business Partner Zebra Technologies designed and implemented the "Carfinder" project, a highly scalable solution for vehicle tracking in real time. Infrastructure, applications, and support processes are implemented within a single centralized system that provides all the information at a glance and thus fulfils an essential requirement for vehicle production.

Mature (technology has been on the market for > 5 years)

The close link between the physical manufacturing of products and their digital counterparts in the computer system offers transparency and certainty at all times for employees.

Modern production processes with real-time tracking fulfills the high quality requirements for production with the introduction of many new vehicles and increasingly short cycles.
