To what extent is your organization healthy enough to be able to anticipate changes over and over again and to cope with the daily challenges it faces.
For each department the ‘infirmities’ are being surveyed, quantified, weighed and prioritized using a predefined questionnaire. For each problem the objectives of change, in relation to the company strategy are clearly registered.
Based on the outcome of this Scan a Health Check report is generated. The state of all the relevant parts, based on an integral business process which covers the complete Supply Chain, has been made understandable and is being weighted. In fact, we take your organization’s temperature and offer you a transparent and clear diagnosis to establish an improvement program on.
Such a diagnosis can be used to outline solution options. Based on possibilities and impossibilities the board determines which solutions have been worked out in detail and what the integral consequences are for the organization. The Sofon Suite makes it possible to implement the solutions with use of the existing systems which support Sales (CRM), production (ERP) and product management/ engineering (PDM).
Smart Customization, a desired conversion from ETO (Engineering to Order), to CTO (Configure to Order) and ultimo to ATO (Assembly to Order), is a vision concerning the organization of business processes, in which management and recording of the own product, the operational production processes and the automated support are closely tuned to each other.
This vision ties in seamlessly with the modern methods of process improvement like Six Sigma and Lean. Six Sigma has been developed from a quality management point of view and reduces the variations in production and business processes. Lean is developed from a logistics point of view, in which an optimal flow is aimed for without any waist such as latency, between and end stock.
