BrainNet supports its customers in all aspects of research & development, operation, purchasing and logistics. We understand that supply chain management is more than just a supporting function in a company. Itâ€™s a core discipline which must contribute in the significant improvement of the long-term performance of a company. Supply chain management needs to find the answers to the most important ecological and geopolitical questions in the coming years â€“ BrainNet helps companies to build up the required competencies, structures and processes.
Few corporate functions have changed as much as purchasing in the past few years. Today, their scope of duties comprises a wide spectrum of subject areas, including the sustainable reduction of costs, optimization of working capital or guaranteeing supply security in times of increasing shortages, price volatility and geopolitically instable raw material markets. In many areas, purchasing plays a key role, ensuring technological advancement in the handling of resources, for example, or ensuring ecological and societal sustainability in the value creation chain. To meet these challenges, purchasing requires the appropriate tools and methods â€“ whether in terms of financing mechanisms and risk management, or forecasting tools to protect the seamlessly integrated value creation chain from cyclical economic divergencies. BrainNet has mastered the entire scale of the purchasing clavier â€“ in all purchasing related matters as well as questions pertaining to the strategic training and qualification of purchasing employees. We help our customers set up powerful purchasing organizations, accompanying them through the transformation of purchasing from cost management factor to value creation management.
Logistics is the infrastructure and driver of the global economy. Logistical competence has, therefore, become a critical success factor, particularly in high-wage countries. Concurrently, geopolitical, economical and technical threats to the logistical supply chain are increasing dramatically. BrainNet has extensive expertise in setting up flexible, adaptable, high performance logistic networks. Alongside the years of experience arising from many hundreds of international projects, we also support research efforts in logistics through close and intensive partnerships with leading educational institutes and initiatives.
Increasing technological complexity, global competition and increasingly shortened product life cycles place a high demand on corporate research and development. With BrainNet Engineers we help in facing this complexity effectively. Here we have the entire developmental process in focus â€“ from improved product and program planning, to managing the production creation process and product standardization. Furthermore, we make use of Design to Cost and product value creation approaches to recognize cost drivers early enough to reduce costs over the entire product life cycle. We combine the optimization of developmental activities in a company with the question of how an R&D network can be set up to take advantage of the innovational power of partners and suppliers effectively.
With BrainNet Engineers we are able to optimize operation processes sustainably across all industries. We create a seamlessly integrated value creation chain, commensurate with the demands made by increasingly volatile markets, decreasing order quantities and global price competition. Based on a comprehensive methodological portfolio, BrainNet Engineers optimizes factories with regard to throughput time and capacity, reducing stock levels in the entire delivery chain and implementing continuous improvement processes. With improved â€˜make or buyâ€™ decisions and increased efficiency throughout the entire production network, we ensure that complex production starts and processes can be planned and managed with a high level of efficiency and effectiveness. With our holistic optimization strategy, we help companies set their production divisions distinctively apart from the global competition.
