eHPU – the new industry standard for design evaluation?!


Update from 12.04.2022
The video recording of the Online-Meetup:

The key figure eHPV is primarily known from vehicle construction. The globally valid standard for evaluating “engineered hours per vehicle” developed by the vehicle disassembly working group in the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) measures the construction-related work content of a vehicle during vehicle assembly. eHPV is a reproducible and comparable metric and can therefore be used as a benchmark for product design and engineering times. As part of the production time “hours per vehicle” (HPV according to Harbour), the benchmark value eHPV is also a target value for the new product planning of many automotive companies. With the help of the eHPV evaluation, the design features of the components are described and visualized in addition to the design-related assembly effort.

But what about outside the automotive industry? Can the benchmark value used in vehicle construction also be used as a cross-industry indicator in production?

Olaf Damitz, product planner at Volkswagen in Wolfsburg, and Dr. Thomas Finsterbusch, head of the MTM Academy, say yes and start the new online meetup series of the MTM ASSOCIATION e. V.

on April 12, 2022 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m

Click here to register. The meetup will be held in German.

The free offer is aimed at designers and industrial engineers who work in the areas of product improvement and process planning. The online meetup is scheduled for one and a half hours, so that in addition to information there is also enough time for open exchange among all participants.
