Consulting Global Manufacturing Footprint

Designing manufacturing networks

Powerful manufacturing and logistics networks today form part of the mandatory responsibility of every corporate management. In the process, this is about much more than just cost benefits in wages by relocating to Eastern Europe or China. It means finding company-specific solutions for the following solutions – since there is no patented recipe applicable to all:

  • Matching depth of value addition
  • Global technology concept / Manufacturing standards
  • Distributing competences over the locations
  • Overall optimum from the manufacturing and supply chain costs
  • Global capacity and investment planning
  • Balance of global and local sourcing
  • Utilizing flexibility tools typical of a given country
  • Global training and qualification programs
