“Automation - The Next Enabler to Global Competitiveness in Automotive Industry” - Thursday, 13th Dec, 2007, Mumbai

Against the backdrop of The Automotive Mission Plan, AMP 2016, and the emerging synergy amongst all stakeholders, Automation India Association, AIA, hosted this Industry Vertical Summit for the AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY.

The summit was organized around 3 major themes – Digital Manufacturing, Plant Safety and Reliability, and Manufacturing Execution Systems.

Each theme was deliberated upon by eminent speakers representing user’s perspective, automation technology perspective and an integrator’s view. The consensus was that to achieve the target of US$ 145 billion output that this industry has set for itself as a global hub we must also recognize the accompanying challenges in the face of consolidation, globalization, and likely over-capacity. The strategic intent that emerged as a result of the global and local experience sharing was to recognize the role of Industrial Automation as the next key enabler for “Global Competitiveness in Automotive Manufacturing in:

  • Achieving higher margins by creating effective global scale, collaborative manufacturing and supply infrastructure
  • Implementing rapid Manufacturing and Delivery processes assuring the right product, at the right time, and at the right quality

AIA’s AutomotiveTech 2007 Summit in Mumbai brought together the Automotive fraternity – OE Manufacturers, allied equipment manufacturers,1st Tier Suppliers, and connected them with the Automation industry experts.

Speaking at the inaugural session, JP Singh, President AIA, spoke about the special and exciting role that automation has in manufacturing and infrastructure, which is opening up new career prospects. Pilloo Aga and Ranjan Sen, both representing ACMA highlighted the urgency to look at automation as an enabler for implementing flexible and lean manufacturing systems. Leena Pandey, SIAM, shared the investment climate, stating that 15 billion dollars investments have already been announced, and India is well on the road to becoming a global manufacturing hub. Summarising the seminar theme, Vijay Paranjape, EC member, AIA, invited the delegates to take the discussion forward after the seminar, and form teams so that we can apply global best practices in our automotive assembly and auto component manufacturing plants. “The automation industry is fully committed to support you”, he concluded.
