Special vehicles and energy supply
Success in product development and production
Constructing special vehicles poses very specific challenges: ConMoto develops individual solutions that meet diverse client requirements without compromising on quality and functionality. In principle, the production of special vehicles is all about the production of small numbers. The specific fields of action require a flexible approach. Concerning the construction process, the following elements are essential:
- Exceptional quality standards due to the use in extreme conditions such as, for example, a demanding environment and challenging weather, and
- Legal requirements, e.g. for the integration of electrical and electronic systems as well as the development of application concepts.
In product development manufacturers have to deal with complexity while still pursuing a lean development process. In our projects we design value creation processes that exploit hidden potentials to reduce costs and increase efficiency. As costs can be calculated in detail, our clients are able to produce high quality vehicles and generate sustainable returns, despite the difficult conditions of small series production.
Cost optimization for networks and services
Process and organizational optimization help raise considerable cost potentials especially in the energy sector. This applies to both networks and services. A cost-cutting program covers issues like investment cost reduction, asset management and maintenance. ConMoto analyzes your business processes and the entire value creation network. Shared services and digitization have a high impact on the quality of energy services. Our experts help you to benefit from growth opportunities in a market, whose political framework conditions are constantly changing
In optimizing special vehicle construction ConMoto consultants have the big picture in sight, but also pay attention to details. Changes are often necessary in different areas of construction and production processes.
Industry competence is reflected in project successes. ConMoto built a new production line at a leading mobile home manufacturer. The optimization program set out to achieve a productivity benchmark for more than 6,000 employees in one plant.
To achieve this, the project team designed a material flow-oriented layout for the assembly. We made specific proposals for the enlargement and conversion of the assembly hall. However, the optimization measures were not limited to assembly, but also included logistics and production control. The plan of action included:
- Establishing a consistent cycle time for all types of vehicles
- Introducing a control system for balancing different work content including resilient pre-assembly and allowing for flexible staffing,
- New material additions to the belt with a comprehensive route network and a new Kanban system
After the completion of the project, the results account for sustainable success. All targeted productivity goals were achieved: our client was able to accomplish a 40 percent productivity leap in production and logistics.
