Schneider Electric, a leader in digital energy management and automation, and AVEVA, a global leader in industrial software focused on digital transformation and sustainability, have announced a partnership with IN-CORE Systèmes to enhance efficiency in electric vehicle (EV) battery production.

The joint offering will connect electrode level to final cell performance and provide customers with a complete data picture to improve processes.

As the EV market continues to see exponential growth, battery production is under greater pressure to improve quality, efficiency and business outcomes. This increased production can lead to new issues, including failure modes and process variation, which in turn create operational, material and labor losses.

In recent years, EV battery production has seen up to 20 per cent of materials scrapped, and an inefficient use of energy with 47 kWh of energy needed to produce 1 kWh of an EV battery cell. These challenges can only be mitigated by greater operational insight.

The partnership between Schneider Electric, AVEVA and IN-CORE will bring greater data connectivity to the production process by addressing data traceability at the electrode level. The IN-CORE Traceability Solution will work with AVEVA System Platform to connect critical parameters to electrode manufacture, final cell, and pack performance, providing relevant data at the right time and format to ensure a complete data picture. This provides customers with positive outcomes such as:

  • Faster troubleshooting of field issues
  • Waste Reduction
  • Production Optimization
  • Materials Optimization

“Operational challenges are the greatest barrier to success in EV battery production,” said Christel Galbrun, Segment President for Mobility at Schneider Electric. “As demand grows, we must improve quality and efficiency, while reducing variation and scrap. This partnership with IN-CORE will provide new levels of data connectivity to the EV market and help customers establish a complete data architecture across all processes.”

“We are delighted to partner with Schneider Electric to address one of the key challenges in the EV market, electrode level data connectivity,” said Michel POPOVIC at IN-CORE Systèmes. “Together, we can collect traceability data, connecting it to the rest of the value stream and contextualize it to bring immediate value to customers.”
