Due to the high amount of car models and the increasing number of variations in the premium car segment, production logistics in the automobile industry will face new challenges. Conventional logistics concepts such as Henry Ford and Frederick Taylor’s conveyor technique will become rare. While conveyors are best-practice for high output and economical production, they are inflexible with high variations. Moreover, an assortment of different parts have to be provided at the line, which results in space constraints and inefficiency in increasing product variety. Hence, it is necessary to focus on contemporary logistics concepts and equipment in order to cope with customer demand when producing in lot size one. Therefore, various logistics concepts and components have been developed by the Institute of Mechanical Handling and Logistics (IFT) of the University of Stuttgart over recent years. The new logistics concepts are more versatile and enable a more flexible and changeable production logistics for a wide range of different products. The aim of this study is to provide an overview of the current situation of the innovative production logistics concepts and describe possibilities for further developments.
