Capital goods

Manufacturers of capital goods must adapt their offerings to a wide variety of customers while controlling their diversity of technical solutions.

They face a high variability of local norms while controlling their direct costs, as well as their development costs and delays.

IAC accompanies them to understand their market and build with them adapted responses: modular and versatile product ranges, optimizing currents and non currents costs and time-to-market.

Design modular equipment ranges

Objective: cover a diversified market (customer profiles, product dimensions or performance) with minimal technical diversity.

Approach: designing modular and versatile product families on the basis of elementary, clinchable technical blocks with optimized time-to-market.

Analyse your market and define a suitable business model and products

Objective: understand your market and its players, define the key success factors and the appropriate offer in terms of products and services.

Redefine your offer to maximize the use of catalog products and limit the use of reengineering

Objective: segment your markets, define key specifications by segment and reposition your offer to limit the use of made-to-measure.

Designing a product at objective cost

Objective: formalize the value proposition, identify and select the optimal technical solutions and reduce time-to-market.

Connect your equipment

Objective: master the challenges of connecting your equipment (data to be measured and recorded, choice of sensors and information transmission technologies, manufacturing costs and time-to-market).

Shorten development schedules and make them more reliable

Optimize your launch schedules by identifying alternative development logics in a Value Stream Mapping approach. S&eaco;curing execution by implementing the innovative piloting practices of Lean Engineering.

Reduce your purchasing costs

Set up cross-functional competition actions to reduce your purchasing commitments by using a wide variety of levers: technical, sourcing, supplier workshops, etc.
