To Accelerate Industry 4.0 and to Collect Large-scale Manufacturing Data, Renault Group and Atos Launches a Unique Service

Renault Group | June 29, 2022

To Accelerate news
  • A strategic partnership to develop and commercialize a one-of-a-kind technology solution for collecting and analysing manufacturing data on a large scale.
  • A new step toward industry digitalization is being taken by improving the operational performance of manufacturing equipment, resulting in higher productivity, fewer defects, and lower energy consumption.
  • This collaboration takes advantage of Renault Group's expertise and experience in digitalizing its manufacturing activities, as well as Atos' expertise as a key player in manufacturing digital transformation and consulting.

28 June 2022, Boulogne-Billancourt and Paris - ID@scale (Industrial Data @ Scale) is a new service for industrial data collection launched by Renault Group and Atos to assist manufacturing companies on their digital journey to Industry 4.0. Manufacturers will be able to collect and structure data from industrial equipment at scale using "ID@S" (Industrial Data @ Scale) to improve operational excellence and product quality.

Manufacturers generate a massive amount of data throughout the manufacturing process. Data is frequently underutilized due to its diversity and lack of standardization, as well as operator time constraints. Access to standardized data via simple analytical tools and dashboards facilitates and accelerates the deployment of many different types of use cases (production, maintenance, quality, and energies, for example), including net zero benefits.

Renault Group's IT, digital, and engineering teams created this solution to capture data from its manufacturing facilities as part of the company's digital transformation strategy. Data is collected and structured in a standardized manner for each type of manufacturing process, allowing a wide range of use cases in manufacturing, engineering, quality, CSR, logistics, and so on to be addressed. This solution is now being implemented on a large scale across twenty-two Renault Group plants. Over 7,500 pieces of equipment are linked, with standardized data models representing over 50 different manufacturing processes. Finally, the partnership is supported by the Group's Consulting and Services teams to market, deploy, and support the "as a service" solution worldwide, enabling rapid and agile deployment of new connectivity, data models, analytics, and insights for a customer within a few weeks.

LION ELECTRIC ANNOUNCES PRODUCTION OF FIRST PROPRIETARY LITHIUM-ION BATTERY PACK AT ITS BATTERY MANUFACTURING FACILITY

LION ELECTRIC | December 22, 2022

The Lion Electric Company, a leading manufacturer of all-electric medium and heavy-duty urban vehicles, today announced that it has completed production of its first lithium-ion battery pack at the company's battery manufacturing facility located in Mirabel, Quebec. Final certification of the first battery pack is expected in the first quarter of 2023, followed by a gradual ramp up of production in 2023. The first batteries produced in Mirabel will power the Lion5 truck and the LionAmbulance, expected to reach commercial production in the first half of 2023. "The production of our first battery pack out of our Mirabel battery facility is an important step for Lion and should, over time, bring with it a new level of optimization for product design and production efficiency, I am incredibly proud of our team for the continued advancement of this project, and I am very thankful to the Canadian and Quebec governments for their support in making it a reality." Yannick Poulin, Lion's Chief Operating Officer Lion's new Mirabel battery manufacturing facility, once fully operational, is expected to give the Company a key market advantage, with vertical integration providing more control of supply, technology advancement, and vehicle integration.
