i4.0 Guided Tours – Industry 4.0 in practice

Join us for a tour of one of our Bosch sites and experience Industry 4.0 first-hand. During the tour, we will be happy to provide you with information on our in-house solutions. But above all, we will show you how you can successfully digitize your own production and logistics processes. We look forward to showing you one of our five selected Bosch plants in Blaichach, Homburg, Nürnberg, Reutlingen and Stuttgart-Feuerbach.

Plant Blaichach
i4.0 Guided Tour

Plant Blaichach

The Blaichach/Immenstadt plant is one of the largest industrial employers in the Allgäu region with around 3,850 associates. The product portfolio for the two locations includes electronic brake systems, systems for use in electric and hybrid vehicles, components for the powertrain system, as well as sensors for engine management and multifunction cameras.

Industry 4.0 at plant Blaichach

As the lead plant for ABS/ESP, the Blaichach plant manages a global production network of 11 locations and over 5,000 interconnected systems.

The Industry 4.0 software solution Nexeed Production Performance Manager helps to systematically improve production processes. This software harmonizes various manufacturing data in order to then make relevant information from this data available to the user. As a result, response times can be shortened, errors can be avoided, tasks can be assigned precisely and newly acquired information will be accessible at all times.

Werk Homburg
i4.0 Guided Tour

Plant Homburg

The Robert Bosch GmbH plant in Homburg/Saar produces components of the Common-Rail-System, which is a fuel-efficient high-pressure injection technology for diesel engines. Moreover the Bosch Rexroth AG manufactures hydraulic controls with corresponding electrical units.

Industry 4.0 at plant Homburg

Derived from the requirements of the Bosch Production System (BPS), in Homburg plant there’s applied a series of digital assistance systems to support the improvement process in planning and performance, which is driven by the employees.

The digitized illustration of the material movements is used comprehensive due to registration by means of RFID and has a variety of measuring points, which generates a fine reflection of the value stream, at its disposal.

Plant Nuremberg

The Nuremberg plant employs around 2,000 associates. It plays an important role in the international Bosch production and development network as the Powertrain Solutions lead plant for 12 production locations and as a center of excellence for production and development.

Industry 4.0 at plant Nuremberg

At the Nuremberg plant, Industry 4.0 approaches for holistic process optimization in mass production and innovative production processes can be experienced, such as the technology of 3D printing or magnetic field measuring technology. In the additive production and industrialization of 3D printing, the Nuremberg plant serves as a center of excellence and is a superb source of expertise for other Bosch plants worldwide.

Transparent data management in practice enables production to be efficient along the networked value stream. The use of autonomous transport systems or collaborative robots, APAS and YUMI, for example, show how human beings will be supported in the future within a production plant.

Plant Reutlingen
i4.0 Guided Tour

Plant Reutlingen

The Automotive Electronics division of Bosch, with its headquarters in Reutlingen, develops, produces and sells microelectronics for automotive applications. Additional core competences of the semiconductor plant include system integration and application technology for vehicles.

Industry 4.0 at plant Reutlingen

A virtual map of all production systems, products and processes in the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) guarantees a high degree of transparency while several thousand batches are being produced simultaneously. Cyber-physical systems update this virtual map in real time.

At the Reutlingen plant, machines automatically exchange process information with one another so that production processes can be optimized and stabilized for the long term. By capturing "big data", the Reutlingen plant can not only increase efficiency, but also guarantee higher quality by evaluating errors.

Plant Feuerbach
i4.0 Guided Tour

Plant Stuttgart-Feuerbach

Around 13,500 employees work in different fields of activity at the Stuttgart-Feuerbach location, which is steeped in tradition. The three market segments, Electric Vehicles, Passenger Cars and Commercial Vehicles/Off-Road, offer comprehensive solutions and an extensive powertrain product and service portfolio, regardless of fuel type.

Industry 4.0 at plant Stuttgart-Feuerbach

Various technologies are used at the Feuerbach plant to network production and logistics in the automotive industry in order to implement individualized customer requirements in a more flexible, efficient as well as resource-efficient manner. One central application is the Industry 4.0 solution Nexeed Intralogistics Execution, which digitizes, analyzes and optimizes processes within the supply chain.

At the shop floor level, a MES system from Bosch provides transparency as the basis for successful optimization, planning and control of production. The goal is to continuously optimize production based on real-time data and to respond quickly to changes.
