Manufacturing

As the globalization of manufacturing continues, production has been moved largely to low-wage countries, to cut costs and gain access to new markets. Industry 4.0 is another huge issue at every large manufacturer in Europe. This has led to serious challenges for production managers. In our experience, the key to success is finding the right mix of approaches. Our clients can benefit from globalization if they design their optimum global footprint design and the right lean manufacturing setup.
