The project's aim is to create unique capabilities for ultra-high-volume manufacture of next generation powertrains. The consortium consists of the manufacturing engineering and machine tool builder supply chain of these new powertrains. The consortium will develop new processes and test them at rate and will integrate new manufacturing concepts based on Industry 4.0 and could lead to a complete digital clone of the factory. The ambition of the consortium is to merge new process and powertrain technologies with the latest advancements in digital manufacturing. The project will be a key project to anchor the high-volume manufacturing capabilities and its supply chains in the UK.
The project is focused on the key areas below which represent critical factors currently affecting the wider automotive manufacturing industry:
