Procurement & Supply Chain Management

 Sourcing (market research, supplier screening, qualification) Proceedings to request for information, proposals and quotation) Awarding and contract management Supplier development and relationship management Project procurement and logistic management Purchase-to-pay, ordermanagement & administration Supply management and documentation Make or Buy - the business about industrial and manufactured goods is in change with regard to shrinking in-house production and increasing outsourcing. Today´s demand are flexible adjustment to production ability and capacity, technological innovation and customized services. Modern production of manufactured goods are organized by value-added networks in which processes with regard to quality, cost, agility, efficiency and risks are decentralized to outsource production and services. Through purchasing more pre-fabricated goods, outsourcing services, increased complexity and customer oriented integration, the procurement organisation are challenged by raised competency required, additional expenditures for resources to control the procurement, quality and supply management effectively and gain strategic savings. Thus interdisciplinary, cross-functional, senior management will be required.  Expediting Quality control Final inspection & acceptance tests Documentation & logistic support Project management und controlling Coordination und communikation Claim management

Quality- and Environmental Management

Quality is the degree to which a set of inherent characteristics fulfil the requirement of quality criteria e.g. related to product specification, management commitments, customer satisfaction or claims of interested parties. Quality management therefore deals with coordinated activities to direct and control an organisation to obtain best level of quality by a quality management system which establish policy and objectives to achieve those objectives through embodiment of people and facilities with an arrangement of responsibilities, authorities and relationships, a set of conditions under which work is performed, processes and related infrastructure. To improve the quality of an organizations outputs, including goods and services, by a structured approach to overall organizational management with continual improvement of internal practices is contemplated as Total Quality Management (TQM).

In Regard to environmental protection organizations of all kind are concerned to achieve proper environmental performance by controlling the impacts of their activities, products and services on environment. To enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects will be managed at best by an environmental management system.

Project Management

Plant and machinery business is exposed to increased demand of customer indivdual solutions and services which are unique and to be considered as projects. Project management hereby is a critical factor for success. To obtain best results relating to quality, cost and time requirements project oriented management and control of products, services and all activities in regard to leadership, communication, supply and flow of information, design, engineering, budget control, contract-, resources-, quality-, time and customer relationship management are of prime importance. With other words: Project management assures quality within time and budget through leadership, the ability to establish vision and direction, to influence and align others.
