What we did
Based on the new strategy we analyzed the entire workflows across 7 production sites across Europe and defined together with the management the best possible structure to manage future challenges and gain competitive advantage. As a result, out of the combined footprint and value stream analysis, we could identify an enormous improvement potential which led to local initiatives. These local initiatives were implemented independently within different sites, led by local management. Management and department heads were trained and qualified to understand advantages of the new concept and to manage transformation processes. In addition, the whole program has been managed on corporate level. Focus of the integration program has been integrated in R&D-processes and the entire order-fulfilment process to realize the designated improvement potential.
