    What makes your manufacturing smarter? Excellent planning. We go the whole way with you – from process and area planning to line and equipment design and factory simulation to commissioning and start-up support.

Production planning

We go the whole way together with our customers – from process and area planning to line and equipment design and factory simulation to commissioning and start-up support. Whether greenfield or brownfield – we are at home in both worlds. With our project management, we effectively reduce your workload and keep processes, costs and deadlines under control.

 

Optimizing your processes with MTM, lean or CIP methods is just as much a part of our services as quality management and appropriate logistics planning. Together, we create the conditions for greater productivity, process reliability and flexibility.

 

Automobile manufacturers and their suppliers worldwide use our specific knowledge and many years of experience for large-scale production with a high number of variants and just-in-time or just-in-sequence requirements. Many medium-sized companies with very small production facilities and batch sizes also benefit.

 

Our vision: We are the leading service specialist for the factory of today and tomorrow. We succeed in this on the one hand through our dynamism and on the other hand through our consistency. This results in our guiding values: reliability, commitment and leading edge.

Our services

Logistics planning

The basis for trouble-free production is an optimally planned material flow. Our experts plan it, optimize your logistics processes and help you increase productivity. As part of logistics planning, we also determine your resource requirements. Whether it’s shelves, inventories, space or personnel – efficiency comes first.

Factory planning

We are your strong partner for sustainable factory planning and support you in planning, redesigning, expanding or optimizing your factory. With experience from numerous projects worldwide, we are experts in both new factory construction (greenfield) and factory planning for existing production buildings (brownfield) to integrate new facilities or production lines.

Simulation

Our simulations guarantee optimal work steps in the future. Visualization allows for problems to be detected early and material flow and processes to be optimized. What is the best way to set up the stations in a new factory? How can processes be optimized or the effectiveness of your production and utilization of your plant be increased? Our Automation & Engineering division supports you in the validation of your existing factory (brownfield) or the visualization of a completely new factory (greenfield).

Production optimization 

Production optimization ensures that your production is optimally aligned. This means that time and costs are reduced while output is increased. To ensure that production optimization succeeds, it is necessary to make various adjustments and use supporting intelligent detailed planning systems. The aim is to achieve end-to-end transparency and increased flexibility throughout the entire production process.

FAQ

What does production planning do? 

Production planning and control is considered a subarea of operational production management. This includes the operational, temporal, quantitative or even spatial planning, management and control, which has the primary goal of ensuring a smooth and at the same time efficient flow of production processes. 

What belongs to production planning? 

The core area of production planning and control includes both production program planning, in which questions about market segments and corresponding products are clarified, and material requirements planning. Furthermore, production process planning with lot size planning, scheduling and capacity planning as well as sequence planning and detailed scheduling, and production control are further important components. 

What are the challenges of production planning and control? 

Many industrial companies struggle to meet their planned production and delivery deadlines and to manufacture the right products. Often, idle times outweigh value-added times or lead times are too long and inventories are too high. The reasons for this are varied and complex. We help you to implement targeted measures to optimize your production.
