SUPPLY CHAIN & PROCUREMENT

SupplyChain&Procurement

In modern value chains, the role of supply chain management and procurement has shifted from an administrative support function to a true value contributor. Due to the increasing complexity of supply networks and the speed of product and tool innovation, supply chains must be flexible and fast. 

To support customers, we develop and implement strategies suited to the age of industrial IoT and we set up organizations and processes that take advantage of upcoming opportunities while optimizing profitability. We do this through our expertise in global network optimization, connected supply chain solutions, integrated value chain planning, supply chain resilience management, and procurement cost out as well as professional negotiation preparations and state-of-the-art digitalization tools (e.g. digital inventory management, big data analytics in procurement, etc.).

Due to the increased influence of digitization, we have, programmed our own Universal Asset Passport blockchain, and driven big data analytics as a new way of exploring our data to extract value and create smart data. Get in touch with our experts to discuss how we can work together to solve any of your supply chain & procurement needs.

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.
