Production and Process Optimization

In Germany, medical engineering and biotechnology is a highly-innovative, fast-growing industry. One of its greatest challenges is to produce sellable products for a market in which costs are rising and health contribution rates constantly declining. Among other things, companies remain competitive if they shape their organizational and processing capabilities in such a way so as to achieve maximum market flexibility through high quality, low throughput times and minimum costs. To ensure the success of this strategy, on top of the aspect of equipment automation, key optimization activities include interoperability of equipment, production and layout planning, order management and the implementation of IT solutions.
