Strike a balance between customer orientation and economic efficiency

The mechanical and plant engineering industry today is under pressure to meet practically every customer requirement. This means that the number of variants and thus complexity and costs are continuing to increase. Companies can however resolve this conflict between customer orientation and economic efficiency through the use of intelligent process patterns such as configure to order together with systematic digitalization of the processes and innovative service offerings.

Digital processes for a batch size of 1

With a workforce of over 6,000, Syntegon is a leading provider of process and packaging technology for the pharmaceutical and food industries. While still part of the Bosch Group, the system manufacturer decided to use CIM Database globally. Syntegon uses CONTACT's PLM solution to support the entire value chain from sales to service and to drive digitalization of key business processes forward.

Get to grips with complex projects and combine agility with reliability

Mechanical and plant engineering projects involve dozens or hundreds of employees from different disciplines working together within tight time and budget constraints. Ensure the success of these projects by combining traditional milestone planning and agile teamwork. You can also take advantage of workflows and other options for digital collaboration. Comply with procedural standards, regulatory requirements and documentary requirements with significantly less effort.

Collaborate effectively with partners and suppliers

The development of complex industrial goods requires effective collaboration between a large number of different participants, often across organizational boundaries. The lower a company's manufacturing depth, the greater the focus on data sharing with partners and suppliers. Use solutions such as those for transmittal management to ensure that distributed teams always have the latest data available to them when working on joint projects and processes.
