Plant Planning and Engineering

Only a keen business can be successful in the long run. Production processes are now subjected to constant change with corresponding consequences for the manufacturing facilities and the respective jobs because the market demands it. This requires often new planning, extension concepts or rescheduling of production facilities and equipment. We divide them into five phases:

  1. Initial phase
  2. Conception
  3. Planning
  4. Implementation
  5. Performance

This approach involves location regulations, layout planning, the facility concept according to TPM points of view, establishment of jobs according to the 5S-principles and the ramp-up management during the start-up of your plant. We evaluate each step under the viewpoints product/technology/layout/business administration/human resources and organization.

Lean Administration

With 30 percent waste in the administrative area, your company should make changes as each chain (supply chain) is only as good as its weakest link. Before any production process, there is an administrative process, and many production problems originate often within the administration. Please keep in mind: Administrative and distribution costs influence the company┬┤s success significantly.

Material Yield Optimisation

When we conduct analyses of material efficiency, we consider the entire value chain. This starts with the design, procurement and logistics process, warehousing, manufacturing, assembly and customer service process as well as the use of by-products, remnants and waste. Cleaning, packing or relevant information processes are also to be included. With our industry know-how and over 30 successful projects in this tacking, we can show your company the way to reach this goal at any time. It is food to know: As we are authorized by demea up to 50 % of the incurred consultancy costs for an analysis can be covered through a subsidy.

Quality management

High customer satisfaction and reliable delivery are today essential features for long-term success One crucial key to achieve this is the continuous improvement of product and process quality. We realize your quality goals with the pragmatic solutions of a 5-step approach:

  1. Actual analysis
  2. Development of a performance measurement system
  3. Introduction of QA control circuits
  4. Expansion of the system to the suppliers
  5. Widespread implementation throughout the company
  6. Creating a QM manual, possibly with instructions to obtain certification

This results in sustainable success for your company after a short time. It reduces errors and adds more value at the same time. In several projects, we were able to demonstrate the effectiveness of the gradual approach.
