Developing a production strategy with a view to smart manufacturing
Creating an investment plan
Our specialists analyze your company on the basis of four different aspects:
1. From the perspective of the factory: Factory development processes (factory planning, investment planning, facilities and equipment, start-up, maintenance, optimization, modernization, etc.)
2. From an order perspective: Business processes (networking software from sales to the client)
3. From the perspective of products: Product development processes (product life cycle, from development, design, manufacturing and optimum material usage to scrapping, recycling, energy-efficient manufacturing, reusability of components, etc.)
4. From a technological perspective: Technological processes (use of new technology due to changes in framework conditions, batch size 1 instead of large-scale production, nesting instead of cutting on the saw, laser edges instead of hot melt adhesive, RFID instead of bar code labels, etc.)
