Battery Production with UNITY at every step along the value chain!

Battery Production for E-Mobility

From battery cells to electric cars

Climate change, society's growing environmental awareness and legal requirements are driving the e-mobility forward faster than ever. At the heart of this technology is the battery. It is decisive for costs, performance and range, and therefore, it plays a key role in determining how competitive a vehicle is. With a value-added share in the electric car of around 40%, the expectations on all those involved in the value chain are correspondingly high. The race for the best technology in  production is in full swing. 

The production of a vehicle battery brings with it a whole new set of challenges. Cell production requires clean conditions and compliance to regulations for hazardous goods as well as special emergency concepts that must be developed for storing and transporting batteries.  Production must meet climate goals and the growing customer demand for green production. Whether it's planning a battery manufacturing factory, setting up the supply chain or reducing your carbon footprint – UNITY supports you as a strategic partner and planner of your battery manufacturing factory at every stage of the value chain. As a trusted partner, we provide you with a holistic and process-oriented approach. With the help of our project management methods, we integrate the right experts at the right time to make you successful.

The challenge

Sourcing is a fundamental aspect of battery production that is influenced by many external factors. The basic materials are only available in a few countries, but the automotive industry plans to require large numbers of batteries the future. In addition, there is a high level of dependence on China for raw materials and lithium conversion. New technologies and more extensive sourcing reduce dependencies and supply bottlenecks for raw materials. Design your sustainable strategy for sourcing battery materials with UNITY.

Supply Chain Excellence

The challenge

Internal material flows are the central nervous system of production. If the goods that must be transported and stored are HV batteries or the required materials to manufacture them, the demands on intralogistics increase significantly as the handling of batteries must comply with national and international specifications and standards. This includes,e.g., a comprehensive emergency concept across all production stages. Design a perfectly coordinated and lean intralogistics system that meets the high demands of battery production together with UNITY.

Intralogistics

The challenge

Battery production is driven by legal regulations and the growing customer demand for green mobility. The focus is therefore on reducing CO2. A large part of the emissions of electric vehicles are caused by the production of the vehicle and the battery. Together with you, we realize a win-win-win situation for you, your customers and the environment. In order to achieve this, we analyze strategic options and ideas for reducing your CO2 footprint and exploiting new market potential by optimizing your business model.

UNITY solution approach

  • Sustainability strategy
  • Roadmap towards sustainable battery production

Your Benefits

  • Best practices and knowledge of trends for focused strategy development
  • In-depth knowledge on carbon footprint, sustainability and the circular economy incl. legal requirementsn

Sustainability

The challenge

The ongoing transformation from the combustion engine to e-mobility is changing the OEMs' supplier portfolio. New suppliers from the areas of battery cells, modules and packs as well as new drive technologies must be integrated into the OEMs' product development process. In addition, maturity levels to the defined quality gates have to be secured in a tight schedule. As a trustworthy partner, UNITY develops your new suppliers to meet the high demands on delivery time, quality and process reliability.

UNITY solution approach

  • Establishment and integration of new suppliers into your processes
  • Clear performance criteria for supplier evaluation
  • Maturity assurance for new parts

Your Benefits

  • New: > 25 years of experience in supplier development in automotive and other industries
  • Clear standards and many best practices
