Consulting Services

Industry 4.0

If you have a limited budget at your disposal, you should consider carefully whether you want to tie it up for years and thus reduce your flexibility. Because an integrated Industry 4.0 production that really uses all the advantages requires a comprehensive system analysis of the existing IT landscape. Often, not all systems that are already in use need to be replaced immediately. At the same time, not all systems that are considered future-proof have the necessary capabilities. Therefore, use our knowledge to achieve your goals for the automation and digitalisation of your company.

Production Cost Control

Are your costs under control? Discover the transparent analysis for your production costs. Without creative business strategies, flexible business concepts, lean processes, optimal information flows and efficiently used machines, you will fall behind in the dynamics. But we know how you can prevent that.

Productivity Increase

Do you want to secure a long-term lead over the competition? With the strategic planning of your production, we decide together: Do you need a new building, or can we optimize your existing production for the future? We support you in this decision as an experienced partner. Through optimal production planning, we reconcile increasing customer orientation, order-related production in quantity 1 and optimal economic efficiency. Because one thing is clear: even with a high number of variants, competitive costs are expected through low inventories, short throughput times and optimal use of resources.

Production Visualisation

Whether production data, material flows or machine statuses - with our services of production visualization, we bring light into the dark and transparency into your production! Here, we present various modules that enable us to make the optimization potential of your production visible. Digitally capture your value stream with smartphone technology!


Uncovering Your Potential

We want to shape the future of your company together with you, put you in the perfect position, and lead you towards success. Because only those that recognize opportunities, define the right measures and consistently implement them, will be rewarded.

Make use of our expertise, our creativity and our practical experience.
