Shorter product life cycles, increasing diversity in variants and models, and new technological developments. These not only increase the complexity of products and processes, they also increase the number and frequency of series ramp-ups.
And so ramp-up management is increasingly becoming the focus of production planners. They are required to balance quality, cost and product complexity and to ensure on-time ramp-up. However, there are hurdles in the way that can prevent an optimal start of production, such as:
Inadequate or missing ramp-up standards, processes and concepts
A changing organisation
Task forces instead of collaborative and transparent planning
Information and KPIs not on-time or on-quality
We are a partner for you that masters processes and interfaces in order to successfully implement a production ramp-up or the relocation of a production facility on time.
Based on framework conditions, such as production programs or delivery obligations, we define a resilient concept and strategic goals with you. In addition, we develop a custom-fit implementation plan with controllable work packages.
Taking account of internal and external interfaces, we develop an organisational and operational structure – complete, binding and practicable from day one.
While resources, costs, milestones and risks are controlled by means of classic project management, we implement the work packages with you in agile sprints. This way, as a manager, you never lose sight of the big picture and your teams can focus completely on completing their tasks. And, if a task force should ever be necessary, we integrate it directly into the agile structures.
Production can't start on time without components. We develop a complete and robust production plan and provide control and reporting for component procurement and component manufacturing.
We define and orchestrate all internal and external interfaces and processes to ensure that the project runs smoothly. Through our transparent control over the course of the project, you'll always be able to react appropriately to deviations from the plan and disruptions.
Together with you, we complete the transfer of the project organisation to the line – put the necessary processes and work methods into practice and implement the remaining tasks from the project management phase.
From the definition of cross-plant and cross-organisational concepts, processes and ramp-up methods, to the operational support of your individual series ramp-up and the management of task-force teams – newboxes is your partner for your successful ramp-up.
