We use a special checklist to evaluate technical systems. It ensures that we consider diverse aspects in detail, such as, for example, functional principle, manufacturing costs, shape, material, surfaces, loading capacity, kinematics, etc. Our neutral point of view and the capacity to make an objective assessment gives us advantages over our customers.
We combat known product weaknesses with suggestions for optimization. Here, we think in particular about alternative functional principles, as these offer wider potential compared to detailed optimizations. This is where we profit from our cross-industry activities.
Since cost reduction takes on a dominant role in optimizations, we have developed an action-catalog containing a list of all the theoretically possible actions for product cost reduction. Things get interesting when we go through this catalog step-by-step with your specialists; considering in what form the relevant action could be´implemented for your product.
