Experts can usually draw on a variety of triedand-tested approaches for optimizing machines. However, the situation is different when charting the future of an entire production plant and finding the best possible path to the actory of Excellence. “It’s an immensely complex task and, naturally, everyone’s experience of the future is quite limited. So you can easily despair at the theory or spend years working on a roadmap concept for the Factory of Excellence,” says Jürgen Heller, CSO Körber Business Area Technologies. “We focus on combining speed and competence. We have a comprehensive understanding of our clients‘ circumstances and the challenges they face. This enables us to work with them as a partner, developing a sound, goal- and cost-oriented total solution within a matter of weeks.”
Finding the way together
The approach integrates an in-depth analysis of the “as-is” situation with vision and strategy concepts, milestones and KPIs as well as specific requirements for various application scenarios and the selection of suitable solutions. “It all adds up to a clear roadmap that is precisely tailored to a company’s needs and allows it to chart a path forward immediately, continually reviewing its progress based on solid data,” says Heller.
