DaimlerChrysler lines up assembly sites

Motor manufacturer DaimlerChrysler has extended its 17-year global communications services agreement with Verizon Business.

The new contract will see DaimlerChrysler use Verizon's Private IP service to link 90 sites, including production plants, across Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

A North American data network covers 400 of its sites, including 32 manufacturing and assembly plants. It delivers computer-generated cues so assembly line staff know which parts to put together at each point in the production process.

DaimlerChrysler reorganised its senior IT management early last year in a bid to better align its IT with business demands. Since then it has signed a deal with Delmia to install new manufacturing software for its Mercedes car plants worldwide.
