The increasing number of unforeseen events has revealed several economic weak spots and has made us aware of how vulnerable our business models and processes are. Although each company firefights their individual emerging issues, one general requirement for businesses can be derived: the ability to react fast.

Whether in the production or along the whole supply chain, the overarching solution presented for the emerging challenges is still digitalization. Today, digitalization is omnipresent and already indispensable in the lives of consumers. However, the business world lacks the ability to utilize its full potential.

Even though most companies and factories have begun implementing industry 4.0 pilots, few have managed to scale digital infrastructure and applications to generate substantial benefits. Our expert team accompanies several renowned companies primarily in producing industries on their journey to I4.0. With our continuous experience, we can support to address current challenges and leverage the proven benefits of I4.0 throughout the company in three main areas:

CDOs, Strategy Executives,
Transformation Leaders

How to move from pilot to full roll-out and benefit from the digital transformation

Managers & Experts of Logistics,
Supply Chain & Planning

How to create transparency and react best and fastest to changes?

Managers & Experts of Production,
Quality & Maintenance

How to create and utilize the infrastructure for flexibility and optimizing production assets?

Your journey towards a digitalized production has already started with promising pilot projects? Perfect! Unfortunately, many fail to scale and extend to the entire value chain. We guide along the way from island solutions to a holistic strategy.
Your digital production will benefit from the proper knowledge, the most current and relevant information, and the maximum implementation speed. Be faster and more efficient than your competitors.

Our training program is designed interactive and closely aligned with your current economic pain points to provide you with the most valuable benefit.
Therefore, our range extends from

✔️ one-day training “Digital Transformation and Scaling” to gain first insights
✔️ over an intense week certificate-course as “Chief Technology Manager” in cooperation with Fraunhofer IPT and RWTH International Academy (CTM Certificate Course Information)
✔️ to individual coaching and consulting

We create and challenge i4.0 strategies, establish an i4.0 sustaining organization and structure, and define lighthouse projects beyond the factory.
