The case is based on a dynamic real-life story. In this case we have examined how Faurecia decorative division has used digital tools and technology, both hardware and software, to first modernize its interior division in Abrera (Spain) plant in 2015 which eventually transformed the plant into a profitable unit while before it was losing 3 M€ every year from 2003.
The case can be used to achieve several learning objectives:
- How to use digital tools in automotive manufacturing plant
- Best innovative practices for transforming automotive plant into profitable unit using digitalization
