Volkswagen Launches Digital Push to Drive Manufacturing Performance
August 10, 2021
Volkswagen has launched a digital transformation push across its assembly plants in the United States and Mexico. As part of Volkswagen’s estimated $1 billion dollar investment in electric mobility and digitalization in North America up to 2025, the company is working to bringing technologies such as cloud-based industrial software, intelligent robotics and artificial intelligence into the factory operations. The company aims to drive a 30 percent increase in manufacturing performance for its electric vehicle assembly and large-scale car assembly in Chattanooga, TN, and Puebla, Mexico, by 2025. To accelerate its digital push, Volkswagen also seeks to increase on-site trainings for its North American workforce.
