Smart Factory Consulting

Consulting for networked production

We advise you in a holistic manner, regardless of whether you are just getting started, expanding gradually, or want to network completely!

:How do you produce even small lot sizes in a cost-effective manner? How do you shape your path into networked production? TRUMPF experts support you step by step. In doing so, we analyze your processes directly on site and compile for you the components from our TruConnect range of solutions that offer the maximum benefit for your production. With our consulting approach, we combine process optimization, in line with lean production (SYNCHRO), with opportunities for networking. This is because we are convinced that production can be made more flexible, productive, and competitive with targeted networking of information and materials.

80 %

is taken up by indirect processes – it is here that the greatest optimization potential can be found

50 %

of all orders
have a lot size of four or fewer parts as the industry average

1 %

of the processing time to the throughput time – in a non-digitally-networked production environment

Thousands of paths – one goal: Step by step toward your networked production

No two production systems are the same, which means your path to a Smart Factory is also unique. Consultancy for networked production is precisely where we come in. Your development possibilities and goals form the starting point of all our considerations. Based on this, we provide you with targeted advice on your path to a Smart Factory. No matter whether you are at the start of the path to a networked factory or want to exploit further potential in your production using additional measures – our experienced advisors will be happy to support you in doing so.
