Digitalization must not be an end in itself. For every Industry 4.0 initiative, it is necessary to set a suitable objective, to avoid it proving futile. The desired benefit must be defined in advance. Manufacturing companies should consider digitalization as an opportunity to exploit efficiency opportunities and to address the needs of their customers through increased customer value even more effectively. Companies that succeed in combining both aspects can advance to become Industry 4.0 pioneers and sustainably set themselves apart from their competitors.
In order to make the most of the potentials of Industry 4.0, manufacturing companies should, in a first step, determine their individual position. The maturity model that our Industry 4.0 experts have specifically developed for this purpose enables you to identify your own status quo very quickly (“Online Quick Check Industry 4.0”).
Following on from that it is necessary to formulate a precise vision and work out the company-specific digitalization strategy. To design a suitable Industry 4.0 solution and implement it accordingly calls for profound technical, technology and industry sector expertise.
As one of the leading consultancies for the manufacturing industry, we are able to provide effective support for almost all Industry 4.0 tasks: starting with determining maturity, through the design and evaluation of a goal-oriented digitalization strategy up to the development of an individual Industry 4.0 roadmap and its operational implementation, including the coaching of the team. These are based on our performance modules in the fields of digital innovations, smart efficiency and change implementation.
This, complemented by the experience of 30 years of project work in the manufacturing industry, leaves us feeling well equipped to lead companies of various sizes and sectors – from global industrial groups to medium-sized manufacturing businesses – effectively and with lasting success into the networked industrial world of tomorrow.
