Everywhere in companies there are opportunities to create value with new technologies.
Frequent topics are energy management and process documentation, Tracking & Identification or product portfolio management.
Energy and resource efficiency is an issue of increasing strategic importance. Many companies lack consistent data and thus transparency to operate a targeted energy management in your company. With the right technologies, a digital footprint of energy consumption in the form of key figures can be recorded and designed via standardized data acquisition, integration of energy storage, smoothing of load peaks and simplification of work processes. This makes it possible to effectively manage energy costs and thus to raise the potential in energy costs and to reduce them significantly as well as to reduce CO2 emissions.
For a continuous improvement process, the clean documentation of key figures is of enormous importance. This is also a basis for demand-oriented production control and planning. With the right technologies, a systematic and transparent data acquisition and data provision can be implemented, which eliminates media breaks and the corresponding additional expenditure, avoids errors and thus standardises work processes in production and assembly. As a result, it is possible to increase efficiency and reduce production costs, as well as to deploy employees flexibly in production, even if they lack detailed knowledge, and to secure expert knowledge in the long term.
Tracking & Identification
Due to optimization potentials but also due to regulatory requirements, the complete traceability and identification of products down to individual components is becoming increasingly important. With the right technologies, a digital image of the individual processes can be created over the entire product lifecycle from incoming to outgoing goods and beyond. This uncovers media breaks, reduces search times, shows deviations from target processes and increases planning and delivery reliability. With this transparency, inventories can be reduced in many areas of the company, process times reduced and employee capacities increased.
Product portfolio management
Insufficiently maintained and standardized product portfolios lead to immense additional expenses in sales, production, development or logistics. For example, through grinding in the commissioning of custom-made products, costly spare parts management and complex and setup-intensive assembly or production processes. With the right technologies, unmaintained data structures can be cleaned up, variances and thus cost drivers can be uncovered and eliminated, and processes in different company areas can be standardized and automated.
