Development of a Parallel Product-Production Co-design for an Agile Battery Cell Production System
Since current battery cell production lines are not flexible regarding format and material, it is necessary to develop new production systems. It is also required to develop this production line as an agile system in order to be able to flexibly counteract unit-specific capacity fluctuations. In addition, only low scrap rates are allowed when integrating new material systems which requires a holistic in-process or in-line control and the associated quality assurance. Agile production systems open up new possibilities for developing the battery cell product. Therefore, this article will present a novel product-production co-design that can be specifically adapted to customer requirements.
