Plant engineering companies are confronted with an increasing number of challenges. In future, it will no longer be sufficient to rely solely on quality, time and price as success factors. In order to remain successful against the competition, further assets are needed.
Increasingly, these include HSE expertise, a professional installation service – occasionally including plant operation –, dealing with export credit insurance as well as the qualified guarantee of "Local Content“ requirements.
In order to cope with the numerous additional challenges, appropriate structures and processes are needed. Along the entire EPC value chain, it is important to design the workflows in such a way that an overall optimum is achieved starting from design through supply chains and on to transportation to the construction site. Optimizing individual areas is not enough. Often, such an isolated procedure poses a threat to overall success.
Using a holistic strategy, pragmatic approach as well as tried and tested methods, we have often been able to support plant engineering companies successfully in organizational restructuring processes and comparably demanding change management projects. One of the most important tasks is to generate the necessary transparency and to develop universally accepted implementable and sustainably effective solutions. What distinguishes us further: We implement the solutions together as a team with the customer.
The main focus of our service portfolio is to translate the requirements of the entire value chain – from installation and handling on the construction site through transports to production and purchasing – into an optimal "Design for Operational Excellence", to manage global engineering, procurement/production and construction teams and to ensure an optimal international work organization and collaboration (organization, processes, IT). This also includes global sourcing and supplier development in low-wage countries.
