Research project
TEC - Total Efficiency Control


The aim of the European research project „TEC – Total Efficiency Control“ is to give tool shops the ability to project the consumption of resources and through it the costs of their tools for the complete lifecycle. This customer specific service gives a knowledge advantage to the companies and with it an advantage in competition, especially against their competitors from low-wage countries. The complex interdependence of the influencing factors on the consumption of resources are analyzed for all stages of the lifecycle and used for the implementation of a calculation tool for the consumption of resources. Based on the gained knowledge a business model has to be developed during the research project and will finally strengthen the competitive position of European tool shops.
