Objective and Results

The aim of the AgiloDrive research project is a new type of agile production system based on modular product and production-specific technologies. "In this way, we want to make it possible to produce electric motors so flexibly in the future that a wide range of variants, technologies and quantities can be manufactured at any time - with economical operation. In this way, cost-reducing economies of scale can also be exploited across different product series and production technologies

 

Content and Approach

Systemic requirements analysis of current and future electric drives for e-vehicles:

  • Concretisation of the target system for the modular product development
  • Development of a future-proof modular system using agile scenario techniques
  • Implementation of an initial modular product system by exemplary filling of the modular system
  • Enabling integrated digital development tools
  • Development of methods for the production-oriented, cost- and resource-efficient design of electrical machines
