European industrial companies – e.g. in the machinery and plant manufacturing and the automotive supplier industries – increasingly face new challenges (see box at right).

In order to stay competitive, companies must cope with the pressure to change that results from these challenges. Production-oriented corporate management increases in importance, and traditional business models are replaced by flexible, customer-oriented systems. This also involves the transition of production and information technology processes from automated, function-related models into flexible end-to-end processes.

BearingPoint supports its customers in the transition of traditional business models into modern, trendsetting corporate structures. In addition to what is called the Business Transformation Framework, BearingPoint offers a toolbox that includes appropriate software and special production models for several sectors.

The Business Transformation Framework (BTF) includes a comprehensive production database with several reference processes from various sectors, a maturity-level model to measure the production maturity of a company, as well as tools for the documentation and optimization of production. In addition, the BTF also offers templates for the actualization of production-related optimization projects, with best-practice approaches for the fast and effective implementation of initiatives that increase the focus of production within the company.

An industry-specific production model complements these methods. In addition to a general overview, the model depicts scenarios and business types. These include models for make-to-order or inter-company processes. The model and the scenarios are based on BearingPoint’s longstanding experience in diverse consulting projects in producing industries.
