Overcome production limitations and meet increased customer demands

Battery process

Is your battery manufacturing process inefficient with limited capabilities to scale?  Are you struggling to meet the traceability requirements for all battery manufacturing? 

 

Without question, the battery manufacturing process is complicated.  But did you know that you can get end-to-end production data and visibility for each battery pack with a single MES solution?

 

Proficy Smart Factory (MES) software supports the diverse battery production process in one manufacturing platform, decreasing your OT costs and maintenance, and giving you a foundation for operations optimization.

Battery Manufacturing: The Road to 2030

Battery manufacturing

How will battery manufacturers meet the five-fold increase in electric vehicle (EV) battery production needed by 2030?

 

Learn how to leverage new software capabilities to efficiently scale EV battery manufacturing. 

 

Top challenges for EV battery manufacturers include:

 

  • Managing complex, interconnected processes
  • Scaling production capacity
  • Enterprise visibility & optimization
  • Transition from linear to circular supply chains

Powered by analytics

There is no shortage of data when it comes to battery manufacturing. Are you and your team capturing, connecting and analyzing that data to optimize?

 

Battery manufacturing is a complicated process to be sure. At GE Digital, we get the battery manufacturing process and have been supporting manufacturers for decades.

 

From precision batch mixing and computational track & trace to large data analytics, we’ve been partnering with companies like yours to design and implement systems that get results.

Battery traceability

Deliver on Traceability

Battery manufacturers are struggling to keep up with demand while maintaining quality and safety.

 

GE Digital can help you unlock the hidden capacity in your factories, empower your workforce, reduce variability and increase plant efficiency.

 

Modern cloud and edge technologies are now available to boost MES capabilities and help ensure compliance with regulations and deliver end-to-end traceability and uncompromising quality.

 

Some of our use cases for improving traceability include:

  • Digitized work instructions and SOPs
  • Quality hold: non-conformance, rework and quarantine
  • Alarm management, corrective action and exception management
  • QA plan and sampling
  • Troubleshooting trees
  • Production set up
