Manufacturing and Process Industry
Added value and flexibility through digital technologies
Industry 4.0 raises production into a new era: machines communicate directly with each other, inform each other about changes in the production process and order scarce material independently. Condition-based monitoring and control of machines and plants presents major challenges, for example in network availability, the management of data security and the interaction of production systems in real time.
At the same time, the classic challenges remain topical: Due to global competition, the manufacturing and process industries are under constant cost pressure. The industries are characterised by a greater variety of variants and declining brand loyalty: Customers expect more and more equipment for the same price. In order to stand out from the emerging competitors from China, India and the Eastern European countries, innovative products, flexibility in order processing and value-oriented customer management are the key to success in addition to efficient structures and processes.
Companies in the aerospace and electrical industries also face a multitude of challenges, which are often associated with the reduction of vertical integration and the goal of a flexible range of services. Digital technologies and process innovations are important drivers here.
As a leading technology and management consultancy, we plan the digital strategy of production, the conception of a smart factory or a digital twin together with our customers. In addition, we are in a position to accompany the organisational and technical implementation and to take on tasks in transformation management. Based on a situation analysis, these include the realignment of the IT infrastructure or the transformation of applications to a uniform IT standard.
We offer our consulting services in the following fields of development, which are essential for the industry:
Our Practices: Industry Innovation & Ecosystems Strategy
Company ReBuilding approach enables companies to be robust and innovative. The focus is on new transformational products and thus the use of network effects
Organization and processes of companies in various industries are our focus - worldwide.
Technologies such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things and Blockchain offer companies the opportunity to optimize, standardize and further consolidate their own IT application landscape while simultaneously benefiting from the use of highly innovative, networked services.
Cloud solutions and IoT platforms are indispensable enablers for important digital trends
Detecon supports telecommunications operators and large companies on their way to a more flexible and efficient organization. An important pillar is the virtualization of the formerly rather monolithic IT in data centers.
