Volkswagen of Brasil
new painting Building Facility
Sao Paulo, Brazil
Volkswagen of Brazil is building a $638 million facility for painting 1,300
cars per day at the Taubate plant. The first project of its size in Brazil to be
fully modeled in 3D, the building was designed in Germany using Bentley
Architecture and the process line was designed in Brazil. project Wise allowed
team members in both countries to collaborate and detect possible clashes.
All drawings and documents received from Germany were deposited
in project Wise so Volkswagen could check for interferences and make
adjustments. Hundreds of interferences have been detected in the building
and process line, saving an estimated $20 million in rework and delays.
The software facilitated decision making, which reduced project execution
and delivery time by 10 percent.
