Manufacturing

Manufacturing today requires excellence in performance and a competitive advantage is the result of continual technological and organizational innovation and a capacity to promote creation processes and an exchange of knowledge as regards the product, technologies and methods.

Moreover, the new industrial paradigm referred to as Industry 4.0 radically modifies the way of working, integrating with clients and suppliers through an exchange of data and an integration among production, R&D and engineering processes.  Intelligent data processing, complex algorithms that allow machines to learn and enabling sensors applied to machines to integrate among themselves are among the solutions that allow one not only to make a dramatic improvement in efficiency and effectiveness, but also to identify new ways of doing things and new business models that produce impacts on economic indicators.

Our team, with consolidated experience in large industrial groups and SMEs and through constant relations with DIHs, research centers and universities can guide you through this phase of disruptive change supplying insight on the main manufacturing trends and support in strategic decisions regarding innovation and business development opportunities, as well as technological and organizational choices at the shop-floor level.

Our approach

We develop your business operatively while promoting the constructive capacity that makes it possible to guide the integrated complexity of processes, technologies and people toward an excellence of results using proactivity and innovation.  Starting from the resources and current best practice, results and international benchmarks, we design the most effective processes for change.  We introduce lean and digital, technological and organizational standards encouraging participation and engagement by the whole team and each member.
