You’ve probably heard a little something about Henry Ford creating the assembly line as we know it today. You may not have heard that Audi is the new revolutionary in the automotive industry.
Audi has been testing this new production method with a small start-up called arculus, headed by a former Audi innovator. They set up shop in a renovated textile factory in Ingolstadt, Germany, near Audi headquarters (and a short 4,200 miles from Hampton, VA!). Their modular assembly process uses stations instead of a continuous line, providing more flexibility and more efficient output.
