BYTON, Foxconn Technology Group and Nanjing Development Zone officially signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement to jointly accelerate the production of BYTON’s first model M-Byte by the first quarter of 2022.

According to the agreement, Foxconn will provide its expertise in advanced manufacturing technology, solid operational management experience and will share industrial resources to support the production of BYTON’s M-Byte. The series version of the premium electric SUV BYTON M-Byte celebrated its premiere at the IAA Frankfurt in 2019, featuring seamless connectivity and a unique user experience. The partnership will advance the growth of each company’s EV business and foster greater development of the EV industry. 

“We are pleased to work with BYTON to advance the production of the M-Byte. This will allow us to contribute toward the further growth of the EV industry, a demonstration of our commitment to the transformation of the traditional automotive industry. The partnership with BYTON is in alignment with our company vision of "3+3=infinity" which symbolizes the infinite possibilities created by Foxconn’s industrial advancement and emerging technologies.” said Young Liu, Chairman of Foxconn Technology Group. 

"We are excited to be back. The partnership with Foxconn will bring us the expertise of precision manufacturing and profound resources, enabling us to deliver the promise of next-generation smart mobility experience," said Ding Qingfen, Co-CEO of BYTON. 

The construction of BYTON’s industrial 4.0 manufacturing base in Nanjing has been completed with all advanced facilities for stamping, welding, painting, general assembly, and battery packing being installed and commissioned. The first batch of pre-production vehicles rolled off the production line and completed safety tests in the first half of 2020. BYTON was granted a new energy vehicle production license in June 2020.

Accurate data is required to adjust processes and to ensure quality over time. This is difficult because not all data is in the same format, and not all sensors perform the same over time. How do you know what the best data to collect is and how to filter out the junk data from useful or smart data? This is not an easy task when the interfaces to data collection sources are complex, and they do not speak the same language, often requiring the vendor’s help to get data out of the machine and then spending time normalizing the data to turn it into something useful. This is a challenge for companies trying to set up a custom data collection system themselves.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.

Lorain County Community College’s Successful MEMS Program

12/07/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team had the pleasure of an extended and detailed conversation with Johnny Vanderford and Courtney Tenhover from Lorain County Community College (LCCC). Vanderford and Tenhover are at the heart of the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) program at LCCC that is emerging as a model for a successful technical higher-education program. This conversation was lively, and the enthusiasm at LCCC is infectious, as it should be; their results are impressive.
