Ensure the performance of your production processes with a professional production team, not just single individuals

Production plants regardless of the industry use automation as a central part of their production processes. Operating reliability and maintainability of automation systems and related support services play a critical role in the management of production processes.

When systems require upgrading or renewal, it is challenging to find expertise with the traditional person-dependent recruitment model. In addition, tight schedules in competitive procurement and bidding for contractors create additional challenges when looking for suitable design resources.

Why is investing in a production team the most beneficial?

Challenges of key-person-dependent design resources: 

1

Cost efficiency, quality and the success of a development project depend on one individual
2

Support is not always received at a critical moment when the system knowhow is key-person-dependen
3

Supervision of design resources of several suppliers takes a remarkable amount of the company’s time

A production team from one source and an intelligent automation solution can guarantee both support and updates on a fast schedule

Production plants often outsource significant part of their automation development from automation suppliers who then become a critical part of operations of the production organization. The selection of an automation investment or automation consults is often a demanding process including technical specifications, competitive bidding processes and various steps of project management. The acquisition of cost-efficient support and maintenance services provided by the automation supplier is also a challenging task for the purchase organization of the production plant in project-type activities.

An extensive production team led by an experienced project manager

Experienced project managers interact and communicate with the customer defining the tasks for their teams. Good management and coordination guarantee good quality/price ratios.

Projects are carried out in a controlled and transparent way saving your time

Projects are carried out using a standard production process, which means that the customer’s input in project management and follow-up can be smaller.

An extensive team guarantees immediate availability of support resources even after the project

The resources of a production team are flexibly available whenever needed for further development, support or maintenance purposes.
