Mastering challenges in attribute-based manufacturing

Ever-increasing product complexity & pricing
The more attributes your product has, the higher the complexity. With an integrated setup, you become able to handle this complexity efficiently - both in terms of pricing and planning.
Time-to-quote: A heavy process
Customer expectations are increasing. Calculating the right quote can be time-consuming when your product is attribute-based. Combining speed and precision can be challenging, but with the right tool, it doesn't have to be.
Supply chain proximity and security
Ensuring you always have the right raw materials available, while keeping your inventory levels low, can be challenging. Integrated business applications support you in maintaining the balance and notify you when a change of plans is needed.
Evolution of business models

Many manufacturing companies experience a evolution in their business model. E.g. going from standardized products towards attribute-based activities. The journey can be challenging, and it's imperative, that your process and people get the right support.

Make to stock cost efficiency
The combination of rising customer expectations and escalating prices presents a significant challenge for maintaining cost control. However, by leveraging the appropriate tools, you can adapt your design and production processes using real-time insights. This enables you to effectively manage your expenses.

Your company's footprint is both affected by your direct and indirect actions - how do you e.g. take raw material's CO2 footprint into account in your purchasing process? This is just one example of situations, where the right internal system should support your business processes.
