We offer approaches, solutions and the latest research results to your challenges in the field of global manufacturing.

 

"Think global, act local... or global? Focus on the site level and advance local skills and know-how, develop a global manufacturing network integrating globally dispersed sites: Contradicting challenges and incompatible tasks?"

 

Managing global operations is no longer a matter of optimising single sites but optimising the entire manufacturing network. International studies show that optimising the network structure offers significantly higher potential than optimising single sites. To reach an optimal set-up of a global manufacturing network, a fit between strategy, configuration and coordination of the network has to be reached. Our area of expertise is the connection of research and industry.
