About Our Services Case Study
We enabled an engineering company to improve cost and quality by introducing platforms and modularised thinking.
Over the years the satisfaction of customer requirements had lead to a multitude of variants of the products. The client was struggling with the enormous complexity of its product components.
The project was structured along three main parallel streams
Modularization of products based on detailed analysis of customers functional requirements and product design and structures.
Standardization of purchased material and components to enable purchasing synergies.
Developing product data management (PDM) support and organization.
By improving modularization, standardisation and changing the way of working, a total product cost reduction of 10% was achieved, together with securing lead-time improvements of 20% through improved technology transfer capabilities.
