The BMW Group is one of the global leading manufacturers of premium automobiles and motorcycles with headquarters in Munich, Germany. The Group, which consists of BMW, Mini and Rolls-Royce, is in the world’s top 20 of motor vehicles producers, owning 31 production and assembly facilities in 15 countries.
BMW was motivated to reduce the time necessary during pre-assembly to scan and verify all the parts in a cockpit. Creating a more integrated and hands-free working environment was a high priority towards increasing overall process quality to recognize efficiency gains.
BMW engaged ProGlove to further introduce assembly line workers to more digital processes. Workers could comfortably scan thousands of parts per day and catch their errors immediately with process feedback.
