Operations - Production

Manufacturers of high-quality products must manage the value chain with constantly increasing efficiency at the lowest possible cost. Continuous productivity improvements are the basis for a mid-term site-strategy. In addition to that, the degree of vertical integration of many OEMs is still decreasing.

Assembly and production processes as well as the supply of the value-added processes with materials need to be regular checked for further improvements. A suitable organizational segmentation of the production sites is often a basis for increasing efficiency. In addition, differentiated planning approaches and control strategies for materials as well as the usage of an appropriate ERP system are part of a production strategy. The development and qualification of the employees is another important aspect. To achieve all this, the right methods and tools need to be choosen and implemented.

The basis for high productivity are already set in the early stages of product launches. The shortening of the ramp-up curve from "job number one" to the planned production quantity shows hidden potential. To increase the output, production- and machine set-up-times must be reduced and the supply of materials up to the existing supplier base must be aligned – and if necessary changed.
