Procurement & Supply Chain Optimization for the Machine and Plant Engineering Industry
Create Clear Value Creation Structures in Machine and Plant Engineering
The high degree of importance that procurement has in machine and plant engineering is primarily due to three factors – the declining extent of internal value creation, increasing competition and more sophisticated interlinking between value creation structures. In addition, digitization results in shorter innovation cycles and therefore requires more involvement from suppliers. As a result, the importance of procurement has grown steadily in recent years. It affects technology and sales, contributing significantly to both your competitiveness and your profits.
As a specialized procurement and supply chain management consultancy, we support you through design and implementation, even in technical environments.
How do we do it?
Potential analysis in strategic procurement
Want to know what we can do? The first step is achieving transparency in your procurement through potential analysis. This allows us to identify existing savings and examine the current organization. We analyse product groups, products and processes and develop an appropriate strategy based on our findings in order to build an optimum long-term structure.
Implementing potential with a strengthened procurement organization
In the implementation phase, we work with your organization to implement these strategies. In machine and plant engineering, it is often the case that significant savings and performance improvements can be achieved with stronger networking and a cross-sectoral approach. At the same time, businesses not only need consultants with new ideas and approaches, but also temporary partners, who get involved in operative tasks. This approach allows us to anchor project performance for the long term.
Increase the performance of your supply chain with strategic supplier management
In addition to strategic procurement measures, the transparency we achieve throughout the entire supply chain is the ideal starting point for cross-sectional and structural changes. For example, establishing cross-functional supplier management ensures optimized value creation and increased supplier innovation. This close cooperation increases planning security and mitigates the risk of failure. We analyse your value chain as part of our supply chain performance check, focusing on strengths and weaknesses and identifying potential for improvement. The possibilities and approaches here are just as diverse and will be customised to your needs, right up to our after sales service.
