Combining engineering centers of GAZ Group's plants into a single organization in 2008 made it possible to consolidate all engineering resources, standardize the processes and methods of developing products and components, reduce the time of product development, as well as to engage system suppliers of automotive components.
of core competence
Matrix organization structure based on 25 core competence centers, project-based organization of work, cutting edge product planning and development system allow the Center to create competitive products on time, with high quality and in line with customer requirements. The Center is permanently staffed with 650 specialists.
Among others the Center makes use of the following methods:
"Virtual Design" – 3D engineering evaluation
"Concurrent Engineering" – product design development simultaneously with production technology and concept development
Design-to-cost – development of several versions of design with cost evaluation
Flexible prototyping technology for construction of high-precision prototypes of body panels and structural elements for any vehicle in short time
UEC cooperates with industry-specific colleges and universities, certification centers, government agencies, as well as with customers whose requirements serve as the foundation for new developments.
Advantages of GAZ Group United Engineering Center:
unique expertise in developing and launching automobiles and automotive systems for Russian market;
ability to complete projects in short time with high level of quality;
