Mechanical and Plant Engineering

Strategic advising for the mechanical and plant engineering

Mechanical and plant engineering are exemplary industries in Europe. However, digitalization is forcing companies to face previously unsuspected challenges. In China and other parts of Asia, new markets and new competitors are springing up all over. Disruptive changes capture supply chains, as well as business and service models, customer-specific special solutions for products and services are becoming standard. New trends make it difficult to attract and retain customers profitably in the face of global competition. Today’s customers also expect trend-setting and modern interaction possibilities in traditional industries. IoT (Internet of Things), smart factory, real-time monitoring, simulation, predictive maintenance – with the degree of networking and integration of products, customers are choosing innovative properties as the determining factor in making investment decisions. And companies are confronted with the task of digitalizing their own internal processes in management, sales, marketing, production, logistics, and service, making them more user-friendly, smarter and more efficient.
