Each time value is allocated in a production network, the question arises as to whether the product portfolio, the operating resources and the core skills are distributed correctly. Only through coordinated site roles can the various plants work together optimally for the overall success of the company.
As globalization increases and new markets open up, depending on their business many companies are realigning their site network. Although major improvements are made to each factory in the process, the factories themselves are not optimally coordinated. In most cases, they compete with each other by exploiting the advantages of their respective locations. Cross-factory benchmarks only make sense if sites have the same role. In addition to economic indicators, these role-dependent criteria also include qualitative site-dependent criteria, such as proximity to customers or markets, the local labor situation, skills, infrastructure, and supply, as well as legal constraints.
The methodical approach allows the complex structures of a production network to be identified and classified. This results in an overall picture of the functional tasks of the production network, thus setting specific objectives by clearly defining the roles of the various sites.
The approach makes it possible to compare sites in a meaningful way and provides a methodical basis for evaluating factories with appropriate key figures. At the same time, we identify best practice solutions for different sites and help you develop them effectively so that you can achieve the respective factory targets.
