Manufacturing

We reinvent the operating, production and value chain models of global industry, accelerating the transition from ideation to implementation.

An epochal change is underway in industry: factories are turning towards different processing systems based on new technologies.

World manufacturing is emerging from a long phase of development, which took place in the name of globalisation. The decline of this phase, which saw a multilateral vision of international trade and the progressive liberalisation of markets assert itself at global level, opens up a new horizon and places industrial economies before new pathways.

The pressure to change is ever stronger:

  • Increasingly closer link between the external environment and the company

  • Distributed IT and advanced robotics now common in production processes

  • New responsibilities towards the customer, now considered a proper client

  • Continuous business assistance, with processes which could be equated with a sort of scheduled maintenance for products or services offered and sold

  • Knowledge products, i.e. products with an intensity of knowledge that lets them configure themselves through physical hardware, accompanied by cognitive software essential for their actual use

This has certain consequences:

  • Reduction in the number of controllable levers

  • Review of mandatory processes

  • Extension of the concept of product

  • Need to find value attributes for the customer

  • Enterprise Network

And the need to equip yourself with new competencies to cope with them:

  • Knowing how to integrate marketing with the factory

  • Knowing how to extract the maximum value from your industrial footprint

  • Developing new production capacity with a networked enterprise system

  • Knowing how to make strategic alliances to stay flexible, investing little but growing

  • Simplifying your quality and information systems and procedures with continuous improvement methods

  • Knowing how to control with indirect levers without hierarchical power
