Henry Ford’s revolution of the assembly line in 1913 has been a while back. After more than 100 years without major ups and downs, the automotive sector of today has to face individualized production processes up to lot size 1 in an environment of increased formalities, tightened legal guidelines and all additional impacts of the ongoing digitalization.

Market requirements are clear: social, ecological and economical sustainability, new innovative engine designs, flexible traffic concepts in addition to the responsible use of energies and resources. Automotive manufacturers also face their own challenges: assurance of competitive advantages through the reduction of costs, intelligent production and logistics processes as well as selective corporations and innovations.  

Another major challenge: an ever growing stake of competitors – highly innovative global players rooted in non-automotive sectors are fearlessly entering the market and define a completely new set of rules concerning transportations. Nobody can predict where the journey will end – but we, as your reliable co-pilot will guide you through all imponderabilities of the digital transformation.

How we see the supply chain of the future

In order to still be successful and able to operate economically in sight of Industry 4.0, new ways have to be pursued and old habits have to be left behind. Only then the interconnected and individualized supply chain can be reached while new procedures such as Predictive Maintenance or Predictive Quality are simultaneously integrated into the production process.  

Intelligent supply chains are the start: they represent the controlling and monitoring mechanism of the supplier ecosystem, production, logistics and sales. Only when interconnected machines and units are combined with IT systems and supply chains of all participating businesses, production- and sales processes can be recreated.

Challenges are huge – our long-term expertise in optimizing processes too.

We support you in facing the challenges of your industrial sector.
