Autoliv GEO Project

Autoliv develops, manufactures and markets airbags, seatbelts, steering wheels, and passive safety electronics. A fortune 500 company headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden the company is among the largest Tier 1 automotive suppliers in the world.

Autoliv has embarked on an initiative to implement a Global Engineering Order (GEO) solution, utilizing the DELMIA Apriso MOM platform. This project is not a typical MOM/MES implementation, but a unique solution designed for Autoliv’s prototyping activities in their Technical Centers and manufacturing Plants. The project goal is to improve Engineering operations and quality, reduce complexity, lead times, and costs of managing prototype orders. Due to the scale of the project, the GEO solution needs to meet high-performance, quality, and user-friendliness requirements.

Autoliv had to find a solution delivery partner that not only had significant DELMIA Apriso experience but could also think outside of the box. After completing a careful selection process, Autoliv selected Andea as their strategic delivery partner for the GEO project. Andea was responsible for the delivery of solution designs, development, testing, training, and rollout activities.

Andea was tasked with the delivery of a unique and highly customizable solution. They also had to work against some very tight timelines and deal with highly demanding business users. As with most complex projects, we also encountered a fair share of challenges along the way. Andea played an integral role in the project, and because of their experience and dedication, we were able to deliver the GEO solution successfully. They are a trustworthy partner that Autoliv can safely recommend to others.
