Key
challenges.

We help manufacturers solve their biggest challenges and create lasting value in industrial operations.

Productivity

... has been stagnating for the past 10 years despite the introduction of new technologies with great potential to drive efficiency gains.

Sustainability

... is more important than ever, with a special focus on optimizing resource and energy efficiency as well as decarbonization.

Labor shortage

... is at an all time high. Faced with dropping worker retention rates and retiring staff, attracting and retaining a quality workforce is a key priority.

Supply disruptions

... increase supply chain vulnerability in today’s unstable global environment. A stronger focus on resilience and flexibility is needed.

Cybersecurity

... is a key priority to minimize the threat potential of cyberattacks, reduce vulnerability and financial damage and ensure continued operations.

Agility

… that places a strong focus on rapid response to the customer is becoming increasingly important and emerging as a key competitive advantage.
Six reasons to work with us.
We are at home on the shop floor
We know manufacturing operations and what it takes to run and continuously improve production sites.
We put value first
We always start with a quantification of the aspired operational improvement and put it into focus throughout our work.
We are problem solvers at heart
We are at our best when the answers have not yet been found. We typically start with optimizing a prioritized area and help shape the technical blueprint for a company-wide roll-out.
We help close the IT/OT gap
A seamless IT/OT integration is key to empower digital factory solutions in the long run. We help identify and close the gaps and set up a secure and scalable data foundation.
We build in-house
capabilities
We put capability building at the center of our implementation approach to help tackle the #1 challenge of digital manufacturing programs — the lack of in-house skills and talent.
We think and act in ecosystems
Building and orchestrating the right set of partners is essential. We therefore team-up with leading organizations, institutions, and technology vendors as well as innovative startups.

Building the future of manufacturing with tech-enabled products, solutions, and businesses.

How
we work.

1

Experience the art-of-possible, discuss strategic options, ask “what if?” and align a joint target picture.​

2

Quantify the value at stake, understand current user pain points, and technology gaps and define actions to take.​

3

Design future-state user journeys, personas, wireframes and mock-ups; test with users and iterate.​

4

Develop, test and refine a first product/ solution (MVP) to proof value in a limited scope and time and create momentum.​

5

Run the product/solution, extent features and functionalities in agile sprints and roll-out to new locations.​

Our focus
technologies.

Connected Worker and Industrial AR

Improve operator efficiency with digitized work instructions, standard operating procedures and checklists, accelerate training and onboarding, and enable remote collaboration within and across organizations.
Worker using virtual reality glasses
Robotic arm

Advanced and Collaborative Robotics

Deploy next generation robotics powered by computer vision and low-code/no-code capabilities to supplement and complement manual labor in assembly and intralogistics.

Our focus
technologies.

Person using an IoT platform

Industrial IoT and Cybersecurity

Collect, store, contextualize, analyze, and visualize data from from industrial equipment, production IT systems, and other sources in a secure, reliable, and scalable manner to provide meanigful insights and enable machine-to-machine communication.
