Benchmarking

The quantitative organizational and technological analysis of your competitive position

Organizational and Technology Benchmarking in Tool Manufacturing

Our tooling database with data sets from all over the world enables us to perform comprehensive technology benchmarking services for tooling companies. It is our standard practice to involve the companies themselves in this analytic process: we start by compiling data on corporate structures and technologies and then complement our knowledge by conducting in situ inspections. Typically, we gather and subsequently analyze data about the product range and the technological configuration as well as the performance of the design, work preparation and production departments before deriving Key Performance Indicators (KPI) from our assessments. Based on these KPIs, the company in question is then compared with other companies within the same industry based on reference data from our database. Our analysis takes account of all organizational as well as technological stages within the generic tool manufacturing process chain. The establishment of reference groups provides the basis for comparisons within the wider industry. All companies receive a detailed analysis that highlights their strengths as well as opportunities for further improvements.
