Production – Industry and medium-sized businesses

Planning as a bottleneck in production

Products are becoming increasingly individual in more than just the automotive industry. However, as the diversity of variants increases, so does the complexity of the processes along the value chain. The planning stage itself becomes a real bottleneck when there is a large number of orders and products. Whether for vehicles, kitchens or in the food industry, delivery dates, productivity and limited production and storage capacities must always be considered at the same time. There is often a lack of transparency regarding sales and the raw materials required. Short-term disruptions and failures can lead to considerable delays and costs in the process.

Adaptive planning thanks to data and AI support

When complex processes have to be managed under high pressure, well-rehearsed procedures on call, extensive use of Excel and a plethora of paperwork appear pragmatic. They are in fact error-prone, not scalable and not transparent at all. This is precisely where we come in with well thought-out digitization solutions and AI-supported assistance systems. They create more transparency in the planning processes and thus help to use resources as efficiently as possible. Data-driven sales forecasts stabilize the procurement processes. AI algorithms continuously and quickly calculate proposals for new procurement and production planning. Optimal production sequences prevent unnecessary changeover times without sacrificing delivery reliability. Even short-term disruptions in the process are reacted to with lightning speed and flexibility through direct data connection. This results in adaptive planning that thinks along with you and lightens your colleagues’ workload.

The resulting advantages are:

  • Increased productivity
  • Better adherence to delivery dates
  • Lower storage requirements
  • Fewer covering purchases
  • Less overproduction
  • More transparent processes
  • More stable processes overall
  • More effective employees in planning and production
