Bringing in production expertise into a series development process

More and more frequently, we are asked to contribute our production expertise to complex development projects. Precisely when it is crucial to be able to narrow down and exhaust the possibilities of series production and supplier performance so that these limits are considered in the respective product concepts.

In the case described, the client used our expertise in a development process that was well behind schedule to evaluate both component availability from sub-suppliers and the processes that could be represented in its own production and to systematically include them in decisions on the last possible concept changes. Our value proposition was essentially given by the fact that we can bridge the gap between product parameters (including critical tolerances) and the monetary impact or even the fundamental representability in the relevant manufacturing processes. Dynamic bottleneck and risk analyses have resulted in this component now stably playing its intended role in the product benefit.
