OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE

OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE – FROM SHARED SERVICES TO THE SHOP FLOOR

Given the context of globalization and acquisitions by Asian companies in Western markets, the pressure of international competition has increased significantly over the past few years. More and more European companies are implementing necessary internationalization processes – with the result of organizational structures and value-adding functions in target regions becoming increasingly complex. Efficiency and transparency are key factors to manage international organizations and value added structures successfully.

This is where the EAC Operational Excellence Team Asia comes in. For companies trying to improve their efficiency, we provide cross-regional, sustained and financially effective support – from the administrative level to the shop floor. Asian subsidiaries now make a significant contribution to the consolidated results of their parent companies. Therefore, all key variables need to be identified and appropriate measures implemented locally in order to secure mid- and long-term competitive advantages.

EAC Operational Excellence projects give organizational, cost and process structures the needed transparency for a business transformation. The implementation consists of the consolidation, optimization and relocation of value streams within China and ASEAN. This guarantees that all potential for a turnaround and strong future positioning is maxed out – both in Asia, as well as along the global value chain.
