Plant Optimization Methodology for Battery Manufacturers

Delivering optimized design, project execution excellence, and efficient ongoing operations


The global Lithium-ion battery manufacturing industry is expanding rapidly in response to burgeoning energy requirements. Along with demand, challenges are also growing.

In battery production, these five challenges are the most widely reported—with production efficiency leading the list. 

  • Improving quality while reducing off-spec material
  • Enhancing throughput and maximizing OEE
  • Managing cost pressures with decreasing battery prices
  • Moving from start-up through scale up
  • Ensuring safety and environmental responsibility


Forward-thinking battery manufacturers work to overcome these challenges before the plant is even built. ABB helps design, equip, and operationalize plants, helping improve project execution while also ensuring safety, efficiency, and flexibility at every stage of the lifecycle.
