Volkswagen To Be A Founding Member Of Catena-X

Volkswagen has joined Catena-X as a founding member to pursue the goal of creating uniform standards for the flow of data and information in the automotive value chain.

In addition to Volkswagen, the union consists of 24 other partners including BMW AG, Deutsche Telekom AG, Mercedes-Benz AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, SAP SE, Siemens AG and ZF Friedrichshafen AG. Catena-X will serve as the basis for a digital ecosystem in which automobile manufacturers, suppliers, dealer associations and technology suppliers can participate and provide transparency for production and supply chain.

Volkswagen will merge its years of experience gained from the networking of its global factory structure with the cloud to build the data infrastructure of Catena-X and help in applications ranging from supply chain optimisation to business partner master data management.

Gerd Walker, Head of Production and Logistics, Volkswagen Group, said, “Data is a key driver for Volkswagen on the path to becoming a sustainable digital company and can become even more important if we share certain data across corporate boundaries. To tap into the full potential of a data network, we need uniform standards and common principles. With Catena-X, we are creating this valuable foundation to enhance our productivity through the secure and sovereign sharing of data and improve transparency along our supply chains.” (MT)
