- Vehicle production includes four main phases: stamping, bodywork, paint, and final assembly.
- The production of engines, gearboxes and chassis can be broken down into several key steps: casting, machining, heat treatment, assembly and test benches.
- Logistics and the Supply Chain coordinate flows upstream of the plant including powertrain component flows and vehicle deliveries.
- The Industrial Performance Department organizes the coordination of progress plans and the consistency and harmony of the Renault group’s manufacturing system.
These major activities group a broad range of operational and technical functions and are supported by technical and service support functions, including quality, maintenance, human resources, management and communication.
