To ensure its ability to persist in the worldwide competitive environment, Volkswagen is pursuing clear targets in productivity and efficiency. By 2025, Volkswagen aims for a productivity improvement of 30 percent at all of the brand’s plants. This is expected to save €2.6 billion worldwide, including €186 million at the Wolfsburg site alone. Volkswagen is pulling out all the stops to accomplish this – with measures ranging from production planning to workplace design.
Production strategy “TRANSFORM.TOGETHER”
Volkswagen has established the overarching framework with the production strategy “TRANSFORM.TOGETHER”. To realize its goals, Volkswagen has defined eight main action areas containing concrete measures to drive the production process at all Volkswagen sites. Dr. Andreas Tostmann, member of the Board of Management responsible for Production and Logistics, explained: “We aim to be among the best in productivity. We have to generate competitive returns to finance key future investments from operating activities and thus secure today’s jobs for the future.”
