The trend toward shorter and shorter product cycles leads to an increased time pressure. The market will not wait if there are bottlenecks in production, and the required delivery times cannot be met.
This means that flexibility in the production is a decisive success factor. Products are ordered with usually tight deadlines, which puts the existing, familiar production processes under pressure. This becomes apparent, especially in situations where there are actually enough material, personnel and machines, but the planned output is not reached in time (or only with extra shifts).
Efficient processes support the delivery times the market demands and are therefore a competitive advantage, or at least they ensure the market position.
Productivity Improvement aims at increasing the productivity of older machine tools that are no longer under guarantee.
Measures, such as, for example, the modernization of the controller hardware and software can increase the productivity of the machine tools by up to 15 percent – at a previously fixed, success-dependent price and for an guaranteed maximum machine downtime.
A productivity increase also leads to reduced unit costs. The return on investment can be calculated precisely after the machine analysis. This can constitute the basis for a decision for the implementation of the measure.
- Increasing the productivity of older machine tools.
- Reduction of the unit time with the same quality.
- Reduced unit costs.
- Only short down times by systematic and time-optimized project handling.
- Success-dependent price.
