Keynote Session Led by KPMG
Carmelo Mariano, Customer and Operations, KPMG
Legendary exotic car maker Lamborghini decided to shift gears on production and build a new smart factory from
the ground up for its new Urus – the world’s first “super sport utility vehicle.”
The famous auto manufacturer turned to KPMG’s experts for their guidance and collaboration as it set out to build what would be its first factory of the future. The Industry 4.0 journey began with a targeted customer market in
mind for the new model. And with a clear understanding of the needs and preferences of the targeted market
segment, the client and KPMG collaborated on a comprehensive Industry 4.0 strategy that defined how the factory, its technology and its processes should work.
With a strategic Industry 4.0 roadmap and its precise objectives in hand, KPMG developed and implemented the complex IT platform that manages manufacturing operation in the entire assembly and finishing halls. The factory features an unprecedented modular design, using digital sensors and robots in a collaborative environment.
Boasting the most-advanced Industry 4.0 standards, the futuristic facility merges virtual worlds and live production by integrating robotics and machine-to-machine collaboration with Lamborghini’s skilled production workers. Each vehicle moves along the production floor via automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) that autonomously transport each car to the appropriate work island.
Electronic monitoring, data collection and reporting from
every corner of the shop floor are available instantly and workers can control every aspect of production on site–or remotely from any location – using tablets that fully eliminate reliance on paper documents.
