Technology assessment for digitalization in battery cell manufacturing
The battery cell manufacturing is increasingly being digitalized to improve product quality and achieve a more transparent and efficient manufacturing process. In this paper, we apply the technology management method called ""technology assessment" to the processes of electrical filling and formation of pouch cells to identify and evaluate possible digitalization measures. As a result, the digitalization measures in the process technology, logistics, quality control and energy system of the two processes are discussed and evaluated according to their potential and technology readiness level. The combination of digital twins of the battery cell with the digital factory operation is assessed as the most promising measure.
