Sustainable concepts for production and logistics

Production and logistics concepts for start-ups, medium-sized companies and large corporations

Today, companies are faced with the challenge of increasing complexity, variant diversity or low quantities in the production program. In the process, the structures in production and logistics have gradually grown and can no longer keep up with the requirements. At the same time, digitalization has changed the way business is done and companies need to adapt their processes to succeed in this new environment. Innovative methods and tools as well as the appropriate IT tools are required to make production and logistics successful in the long term. We are your first point of contact when it comes to production and logistics. With our consulting services, we work to make your production and logistics successful – individually tailored to your needs.

Customer problems & solutions

Every company, but also every project is unique. Many of our customers face similar tasks and challenges, although they belong to different industries. We find the best solution for your company, provide exciting transfer services from other industries and support you and your team in implementing the optimal concept for your production and logistics.

  • Capacity problem: Capacity issues can result in portions of orders not being completed on time. In the worst case, there is a risk of loss of sales or market share.

  • Solution: We analyze your capacity requirements for your products today and tomorrow, determine dynamic bottlenecks and work with you to create a balanced concept for production control and your successful future.

  • Excessive inventory: An excessive amount of inventory in the warehouse can result in high material storage costs and space shortages. In addition to the financial burden, a supply problem can also quickly become a major construction site.

  • Solution: We evaluate systematically your inventory and set a sustainable inventory level for the future. This naturally includes forward-looking supply concepts that take into account modern sourcing strategies.

  • Lack of transparency:A lack of transparency in the supply chain can lead to problems in monitoring deadlines and managing logistics.

  • Solution: As part of the process and data analyses, we use innovative methods as well as a pragmatic approach to sustainably increase transparency. The model of a supply chain tower can be a first approach here.

  • Efficiency issues: Inefficient processes and equipment can lead to high costs and lower productivity. Missing KPIs such as OEE or TEEP to machines are often not available or are insufficiently used.

  • Solution: Together with your employees, we design target processes, optimize material flow or setup efforts, for example, and adjust capacities to demand.

  • Lack of flexibility: A lack of flexibility in adapting to changes in demand or the market can lead to losses.

  • Solution: Through appropriate measures in the areas of assembly concept, automation, technology and warehousing, we sustainably increase your flexibility.

  • Technology backlog: An outdated machine or plant fleet leads to investment backlogs and continuously reduces competitiveness.

  • Solution: We bundle technological competencies together with you, scan the market and track down cutting edge technologies for your company. Extensive evaluation methods ensure the technological “tailor-made suit” for your production.
