The assembly line of the future is digital

Smart Factory Assembly by Bossard

Bossard's Smart Factory Assembly is an innovative solution for digitalising and automating the assembly line. The result is higher quality, increased traceability and more flexibility. On this page, you can get an overview of the different elements we offer as part of a customised solution that solves the challenges you face in your production environment.

Core elements of the digital assembly line

1Digital and interactive work instructions

Digital and interactive work instructions are the foundation of the digital assembly line. With digital work instructions, the employee is guided through each step of the assembly process, and the benefits are many, including a faster onboarding and start-up of assembly processes, increased process reliability, quick and efficient crossover between assembly processes, etc. Learn more about the possibilities and benefits here:

Smart tools og digital devices

Connecting smart tools and digital measuring instruments and devices to the digital assembly line can automate processes such as tool and device changeover along with process data recording. This can simplify assembly processes and increase productivity. Read more about the multitude of devices that can be connected and the benefits you will enjoy here:

3Data collection and process optimisation 

One of the most powerful tools the digital assembly line offers is the ability to collect and analyse real-time data about every step on the path to the finished product. With this knowledge, you have the possibility to optimise assembly processes and streamline production in order to minimise waste and maximise productivity. Read more about the possibilities here:

Why invest in the digital assembly line?

Vincent smart factory assembly

citat start As a supplier to over 2,000 companies in Scandinavia, we have seen how the most competitive manufacturing companies are also the ones that actively include digital solutions in their production. This is because, among other things, these companies are able to minimise resource waste while increasing their adaptability and productivity. And that's exactly what Smart Factory Assembly can do. We basically make your tools and components talk to you and give you information, so you can identify inefficiencies and errors in your production and take action in time to improve exactly where it's needed. In this way, you avoid slowing down your growth, keeping your production resilient in both up and down times. citat slut

Digital and interactive work instructions

One of the core elements of Smart Factory Assembly is the digitisation of work instructions, a solution that makes the assembly process more efficient and safe. 

With digital work instructions, the operator is guided through each step of the assembly process. This offers several benefits. Onboarding of new employees is significantly faster. And employees can be confident that they are performing the correct processes and avoiding mistakes, even when switching from one assembly process to another. New work instructions and updates are implemented centrally and digitally, eliminating the need to keep track of different paper versions. Learn more here.

Display options


Touch screen





smart glasses

Smart glasses

The digital work instructions can be displayed in a number of different ways. Available display solutions include: tablet, screen, projector and smart glasses. Each display option has its advantages in relation to the workstation setup. For example, a tablet is a good solution for assembly processes where flexibility is needed. What all solutions have in common is that the employee can interact with the device. The operator has the option to indicate that a task is complete and move on to the next step in the assembly process, either by tapping on a touchscreen or using gestures that are detected by sensors. Employees also get information delivered directly to the display solution, such as information about errors in the assembly process. Learn more about the display options here.

Smart tools and digitally connected devices

Manufacturing companies use a lot of invisible resources on setting, calibrating and configuring tools. But it's possible to simplify this process significantly. With Smart Factory Assembly, we offer a simple solution to connect and integrate smart tools and devices on the assembly line. This solution increases productivity and process reliability and can be customised to specific needs.

Which devices can be connected?


Screwdrivers and rivet tools


Pick-by-Light and tower systems


Scanners, cameras and sensors


Digitale measuring instruments


Cobots / robots

Most digital tools can be connected to the digital assembly line. Screwdrivers and rivet tools, scanners, sensors and digital measuring instruments such as scales and electrical test equipment are just some of the examples.

Not only do digital tools make it possible to properly calibrate the tools, they can also help ensure that operators perform the assembly correctly every time. Tools can be locked and unlocked depending on the stage of the assembly process and can provide feedback to the system, making it easy to detect errors early in the process.

It is also possible to connect devices that further increase productivity, such as Pick-by-light, which makes it possible to quickly and easily find the next component from the right storage box, and Cobots / robotic arms that can perform parts of the assembly and support the operator's work.

Data analysis, quality control and process optimisation

Digitisation of production processes can have a significant impact on a company's efficiency and competitiveness. Companies can gain a number of benefits by actively utilising digital production and quality data. Collecting and analysing data generated during the production process can give companies a deeper insight into their work processes and identify areas where there is room for improvement.

What does digitising production data achieve?


One of the main benefits of recording production data is that it allows you to perform technical tests during assembly and both perform ongoing quality control and track progress in relation to production targets. This allows any problems or errors to be detected early in the process, which can save the company costly corrections later in the process.

Another benefit is the increased transparency of the production process, which allows for quick and simple analyses and the implementation of process improvements on an ongoing basis. Companies can use the data to identify inefficient processes and optimise their production to reduce costs and increase productivity.
