BMW speeds production ramp-up of new models by means of VR

November 23, 2018 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
In order to make the production start-up of new models smoother, BMW sends participating production planners together into a virtual reality. There they already can develop and optimize the assembly positions that do not yet exist - without having to build prototypes.

Months before the start of production of the first new BMW 3 Series, production planners had already completely worked out individual assembly workstations - in a virtual world. For example, in cockpit pre-assembly, the place where the vehicle's cockpit is assembled before it is installed in the vehicle. For the first time, the planners for buildings, systems, logistics and assembly, together with production staff, were able to assess the new production area completely virtually and test the new processes in 3D.
