Abstract:
The pressure to reduce the life cycle of products, as a way to keep business maintenance and competitiveness of automotive companies, has stimulated the searching for solutions to shorten the long implementation timing of new manufacturing lines.The use of Digital Factory concepts at Volkswagen of Brazil became itself an alternative for better assessment of products and process, thus shortening the installation period and reducing correction activities due to assertively found solutions.The development of methodology and the structure of those concepts have established the necessity of expansion for companies which work in partnership on activities of planning and project designing of body shop lines. That work plan aims to feature the communication interfaces between suppliers and Volkswagen of Brazil, in order to define the basic tools that enable the information exchange and the qualification process of Suppliers according to patterns and requirements of the Digital Factory, already suited for concepts and structures of Volkswagen of Brazil, which are conducted by the Manufacturing Engineering - Body Shop.
