Schubert-Consutling supports its customers in project planning
Industrial production is becoming increasingly complex and dynamic. Producers from the food and beverage industry, cosmetics manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies are adapting production to their customers’ cycles and in line with customer requests, down to batch sizes of one. Added to this are current trends such as digitalisation, e-mobility and the need to reduce time to market.
Implementing these industry trends is done by networking higher-level systems, such as SAP, MES and ERP, and designing new systems and planning concepts. In the retail sector, current requirements are responded to by quickly implementing mixed palette, products in shipping cartons or customised product packaging. Concurrently, entire packaging centres are being restructured or new logistics concepts are needed in order to meet customer demand quickly and efficiently. In the packaging sector, these requirements are reflected in the form of white label, white carton, bluetooth technology and RFID.
As the project develops, machine and system manufacturers are brought on board. With its market-orientated approach to handling individual projects with a variety of suppliers, Schubert Consulting can offer its customers a broad spectrum of solutions.
With factory planning (so-called Greenfield Projects), Schubert Consulting is not just supporting its customers in the final packaging sector. The requirements include the planning of a new packaging system, as well as complete space and logistics planning, with the integration of the lines within the newly designed production areas. Implementation takes place by preparing and evaluating the production scenarios, risk assessments, line layouts, production planning and feasibility studies. As a consequence, the customer obtains a complete concept for internal project approval.
By using Schubert Consulting, manufacturers from a wide range of industries can focus on their core competencies – whether that is baking biscuits, brewing beer or developing medicines.
Michael Graf sums up the benefits of Schubert Consulting’s range of services: “Customers appreciate Schubert Consulting for the quality of our work, our timeliness, our problem-solving expertise, our new perspective on projects and our experience of over 50 years in the final packaging sector through the Schubert brand”.
