The main topic of the group is the examination of changes in automotive assembly process caused by the electrification of the power train. This includes the whole product life cycle of new assembly processes, but the focus is on the design of mounting structure and process. Besides specific challenges in electrification, the diversity of options in assembly is increasing. This necessitates innovative assembly concepts, especially for the realization of new vehicle structures. The group Automotive Assembly wishes to contribute to the creation of new approaches which lead to practical solutions in this dynamic environment. The aim is to increase the efficiency in automotive production within an environment of rising variance and meaning of ecological factor.

The team is completed by the colleagues of the Research Group Assembly Planning of the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL).
