Digitization opens up significant opportunities for your value creation. But how do you digitize and optimize your company? We support you in increasing effectiveness and efficiency - from the strategy to the personal roadmap to the global roll-out of use cases.

We take digitization for granted in our everyday lives - whether it's making purchases online, using social media or even controlling lamps and coffee machines via smart home devices.

But how do you leverage the benefits of digital solutions to add value to your business? Digital applications allow transparent and efficient processes, open up opportunities for the economic use of data and support your employees in their daily work.

We are convinced that the companies that will remain competitive in the future are those that intelligently connect people, processes, technologies and data.

However, across different industries and companies, the optimal solution can look very different. Successful companies are therefore those that can already answer the precise question of "why" at the beginning of the digital transformation. In our strategy-driven approach, we start there with you and work our way step by step through individual solutions toward competitive value creation. Our consultants accompany you along the entire path as project managers, structure and process architects, critical process questioners, independent provider experts and pioneering structure providers.


Qualification and visioning

Smart Factory, Industry 4.0, Lean and Digital: In a first step, it is important to agree on a common understanding of central terms and models within your company. Our online Smart Starter Programm offers a good opportunity to do this.
In the so-called Management Bootcamp, the first thrust of the company's own Smart Factory is defined on the basis of concretely implemented project examples.

Strategy development

Do you want to reduce costs? Or do you want to stand out in the market with a special customer service? At the beginning of a holistic digital transformation is the question of "why". After all, only those who have a clear picture in mind can later act in a targeted manner.

Identification of smart potentials

The next step is to check your value stream for digitization potential. In many cases, a data-driven value stream design or a smart potential analysis is the tool of choice for this. We analyze your direct and indirect processes and determine the potentials and opportunities and define with you the digital applications required for this. A prioritized "Opportunities/Potential Portfolio" is the result of this step. You can find examples of typical digital applications in our use case library.

Selection of digital applications (use cases)

In this step, the identified potentials are evaluated with the involvement of the specialist departments and prioritized in consideration of the defined strategy. This results in a jointly approved implementation roadmap of the most important digital solutions.
This process not only generates a company-wide common understanding of the initial measures, but also strengthens the overarching motivation of all participants for this "journey".

Implementation of use cases and global roll-out

For the implementation of the use cases, we recommend agile project management, i.e., working in short cycles (sprints), since this approach achieves the fastest results and the cost budget can be tracked very closely.

The project team defines the favored solution provider via the process design, the recording of further requirements and a mature supplier selection.

This also guarantees a very high MA identification as an important success factor.

Once the supplier has been selected and commissioned, the use case is implemented in the defined area.

In this phase, too, the involvement of the employees who will later be responsible is a key success factor. After implementation, training and stabilization of the applications in a pilot plant, the use cases can be rolled out to possible other locations of the company.

Change Management

The key success factor for all transformation projects are the people ivolved. Transformations often fail due to a lack of change management as managers and their employees are not integrated, informed, picked up and taken along. Accordingly, change management is an essential part of every transformation project for NEONEX.

Our approach

Process first, technology second. For many providers, the focus of change is on the hasty deployment of hardware & software solutions - without taking a close look at the underlying processes. This not only leads to the fact that prevailing inefficiencies are not really eliminated. Rather, user-friendliness and acceptance on the part of employees often suffer as well. With our many years of experience in industry and with transformation projects, we know that digital tools only deliver added value in conjunction with lean processes and satisfied employees. That's why our priority is first to improve existing processes with LEAN principles and the involvement of all employees before hardware & software solutions are tailored to these needs.

NEONEX Success Factors

Our in-depth experience with end-2-end business processes combined with our LEAN, supply chain & digital knowledge enables us to design waste-free processes with you that are interlinked from order entry to order exit. We do not view new technologies and methods such as IIoT and data analytics as solutions in themselves, but as enablers for individually optimized processes.

Make your existing production environment fit for future. Decide for NEONEX Smart Factory Transformation if you want to gain sustainable process improvements through the smart use of Industry 4.0 technologies.
