OPERATIONS & SUPPLY CHAIN
Achieving sustainable process excellence in digital operations and supply chain.
We help you define your digital operations strategy, apply state-of-the-art technology and build your digital factories. Let us improve end-to-end processes in your manufacturing facilities, logistics networks, procurement and project businesses. Our experts empower your project and risk management along the entire project life cycle, and jointly design and implement your digital operations and supply chain of the future.
PRODUCTION & LOGISTICS
We help clients make their factories ﬁt for the future and become truly Lean Digital Factories. We want to support your digitalization journey by focusing on creating your tailored digitalization roadmap, creating robust E2E supply chains, supporting factory planning, enhancing production excellence, optimizing logistics processes, and creating an IT blueprint to support business. We empower you in both strategic and operational questions.
We also help clients to optimize their allocation of resources and rethink responsibilities, and enable them to modernize their factories within green or brownﬁeld developments. Our offerings include the blueprint to a lean digital factory, high-performing production systems, intelligent plant logistics, Manufacturing Operations Management, and Manufacturing IT. Our clients have a partner at every step in their digitalization journey.
SUPPLY CHAIN & 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.
How we help our clients succeed
Are you ready to take advantage of the possibilities afforded by IoT solutions? Get some inspiration from the case studies below.
CREATING A HOLISTIC AND SUSTAINABLE LOGISTICS CONCEPT FOR THE FUTURE
As a result of changes in the manufacturing footprint, our client needed to adapt his logistics concept. Leveraging digitalization potentials, a holistic and sustainable approach was created to guide our client into the future.
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.
SPEEDING UP THE TRANSITION TO NEW BUSINESS MODELS WITH AGILE AND DEVOPS AT SCALE
Due to increasing digitalization in business and manufacturing and new emerging technologies in production our client wanted to develop their own industrial IoT cloud platform. With the implementation of a scaled Agile setup we achieved reduced time to market and increased release frequency in the product development process.
