Understand production and master complexity


The complexity of your production increases with the dynamism of the market and an increasingly customized production? You know your production, but wonder why it is not as competitive as it should be?

As with a medical health check, we analyze the health of your production. In addition to the analysis of traditional key performance indicators, a data analysis by data mining methods provides the possibility to create a great transparency as a basis for improving your production processes.

In a five-step process we analyze your production processes and identify potential for improvement:

The standardized approach begins with a definition of your specific information needs. For this purpose, we will derive specific questions from your goals and problems in cooperation with you. In this way, we ensure that open questions are answered in a specific and target-oriented way in your company. We do not only concretize your content, but also identify which addressee group needs which information to ensure the right level of granularity in the subsequent data analysis and information.
On the basis of the first step, we deduce which data is needed and look at your existing data. This is how we adapt iteratively to your data base.
We then use our know-how in data analysis and analyze your data using a transparent set of key performance indicators. We are looking for patterns that shape the production processes n order to make the complexity of your production easier to understand and manage.
Results are interpreted in the next step with expert knowledge. In doing so, we include both your company-specific expertise and our many years of experience in production management and data analysis. As a result, you get confirmed insights and new hypotheses about causes and effects.
Finally, the developed hypotheses are tested either simulatively or in pilot projects in your production for correctness. As a result, we conduct clear and targeted action recommendations and help you achieve both strategic and operational goals in a sustainable manner.
