Being a management consultancy with leading technological expertise, Strategy Engineers offers unique consulting services in product cost management and optimisation. Out of this rich consulting portfolio, Martin Kieckebusch – Partner with Strategy Engineers and responsible for product cost management – will present on the BME-Value Day 2018 at Airbus in Hamburg (03./04. July 2018) the future preconditions, processes and tools enabling companies to “get a grip” on their product cost.
“Our international study on best practices in product cost management paints a sobering picture”, concludes Martin Kieckebusch and explains: “In most cases, there is no single root cause but a multitude of small issues in themselves leading to severe cost issues on organisation level.” To holistically support the analysis and improvement of these issues, Strategy Engineers has developed and established a comprehensive tool kit for strategic product cost optimisation. It enables clients to not only yield short-term potentials based on control levers for engineering, production and purchasing, but also to analyse and improve the processes and tools used in cost management.
Based on this tool kit, Strategy Engineers has successfully supported its clients in the automotive industry, but also in machinery and plant engineering or renewable energies in improving their product profitability by successfully managing product cost. The experienced consultants team of Strategy Engineers supports leveraging leading technology know-how from the company’s network as well as the AVL Group. Martin Kieckebusch and his team are looking forward to meeting you on the BME-Value Day 2018 with Airbus and discuss, how Strategy Engineers can support you in product cost optimisation going forward.
