EVALUATION OF AN ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING CONCEPT BASED ON DIGITAL TWIN FOR BMW GROUP
While targeting for higher efficiency, testing of new concepts in real plant operations is risky. The BMW Group wanted to sound the capabilities of a digital twin with respect to Additive Manufacturing processes and technology. Together we developed a Digital Twin based on a 3D material flow simulation model created with the Siemens software "Plant Simulation". A simulation and evaluation of several planning and scaling scenarios for printing of selected parts was conducted.
IDENTIFYING NEW BUSINESS MODEL POTENTIALS IN AUTOMOTIVE AFTER SALES
For an established OEM based in Europe, we derived and evaluated scenarios for our client's after market activities based on the identification of automotive-specific business models and service opportunities – from traditional car selling towards innovative solutions like "vehicle as a platform". We delivered proposals for concrete new business models like subscription based models, over the air updates or feature on demand, helping the client to tap into new revenue areas and tackle market challenges.
LEVERAGING THE BUSINESS POTENTIALS OF AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES THROUGH NEWLY DEVELOPED BUSINESS MODELS
We supported one of the leading premium OEMs to develop and outline their strategy for a future autonomous vehicle system and the associated ecosystem. We identified promising use cases for city logistic and private-public mobility services. We analyzed the corresponding business and operating model and finally generated a concrete business plan and a detailed implementation roadmap for our client.
STRATEGICALLY PROFESSIONALIZING AN ECOSYSTEM FOR AUTOMOTIVE DAMAGE CLAIMS
We helped our client in the automotive sector to identify levers to increase efficiency in his claims management governance to steer crashed cars into his own workshop network and prepare for upcoming trends and changes in market and customer segments. We developed a strategic target picture for the next 5 years to enable successful positioning in the future market, master upcoming challenges and draft tailored organizational setups.
