Digitization of the Production Part Approval Process
Mercedes-Benz Cars is digitizing the part sampling process together with the OEM overarching internet platform material.one. The platform serves as a central link between all stakeholders: suppliers, sub-suppliers, laboratories and Mercedes-Benz.
For simplified material sampling, material.one enables sampling on the side of the CAD model as well as prefabricated digitized test plans based on general industry standards as well as DBLs and MBNs from Mercedes-Benz. As a result, you can plan and carry out tests with much less effort.
Moreover, the integration of the laboratories into the platform enables the tool-based selection of a laboratory.
Both the requirements of the test plan and the time availability of the laboratory are taken into account.
In addition, you can more easily integrate sub-suppliers into the sampling process by allowing partial audits to be delegated through the platform. This aspect greatly facilitates and accelerates the data collection process.
The rollout of the new process will start in 2021. You will now receive new information on a regular basis.
Become curious? Below is a glimpse. Be there! Together with us, design the future of material sampling.
