Cellforce Group GmbH, a joint venture between sports car manufacturer Porsche and battery specialist CUSTOMCELLS, is building a state-of-the-art development and production site in the Mahden intermunicipal industrial area in Reutlingen-Nord/Kirchentellinsfurt. The start of production is planned for 2024.
As part of a semester project of the Master of Science Operations Management (MOM), a seven-member project team of the ESB Business School is creating a digital model that depicts the future material flow of battery cell production as realistically as possible. The model identifies points of optimization before the start of production and provides well-founded forecasts about the expected output of production. Defined test scenarios will be simulated to identify bottlenecks or critical processes in production at an early stage. The simulation results can be used to derive recommendations to optimize the factory layout before its construction.
