High-tech & Electronics Industry

Integrated Consulting for industry leaders in the High-tech & Electronics Industry

The high-tech industry is characterised by a very high rate in innovation. This means that time-to-market must be reduced, production must be flexible enough to cope with extreme fluctuations in demand and inventories must be minimised owing to steep price decreases. In view of price wars, the high-tech industry has long since adopted a global stance. Continually optimising complex value chains as regards costs, deliver capacity and quality – thereby building in the flexibility to respond to demand shifts and new products – is a constant challenge. Last but not least, the configuration of complex systems must be increasingly customer-specific, and spares must be kept available even for older products.
