Abstract

In the automotive industry, as in other industries, there is a clear drive to achieve higher efficiency in industrial processes, energy savings, waste minimization and reduction of greenhouse gases. This effort extends to both production areas and associated areas such as logistics. This is particularly true in the automotive industry, where stable and efficient logistic is an important prerequisite for a stable supply of vehicles to final customers. This is also the case in specific production facilities such as foundry plants, where important vehicle components such as engine blocks, gearboxes and clutch housings are currently produced. Foundry plants are planned to be used for production of some components of electric vehicles in the future. This paper focuses on the main specifics of Škoda Auto company foundry plant and the possibilities of applying logistics process innovations in this production plant. In more detail it also focuses on the possibilities of data collection, processing, and digitalization in connection with the transition to Industry 4.0.

Keywords: cylinder blocks, foundry logistics, innovations, digitalization
