Factory Navigator | A BearingPoint Accelerator
Market Drivers
The pressure to decrease capital costs, reduce inventory and improve manufacturing and logistics processes has never been greater. Efficient production and
logistics have become a crucial success factor in many industries. Not achieving cost reduction or process innovation goals means falling behind competitors.
Despite the necessity to reduce costs, logistics processes are expected to function flawlessly at minimal costs.
Many companies struggle to balance these two contradicting goals. Hidden potentials remain unidentified. As a result, these companies operate on over-
capacity and over-stock in order to safeguard their logistics performance.
Furthermore, the complexity of today’s logistics and production processes often results in insufficient process control and inadequate decision support. ERP
systems and conventional analytics software fail to create the desired transparency, nor do they contain reliable early-warning-mechanisms.
Factory Navigator | A BearingPoint Accelerator
Market Drivers
BearingPoint helps its customers to achieve logistics excellence using the in-house Factory Navigator software.
Typical challenges are:
•• Requirements to reduce logistics costs and to improve logistics performance measures
•• Process deficiencies (e.g. stock-outs) despite overcapacity and high stock levels
•• Awareness of high hidden costs but inability to identify saving potential
•• Lack of alert and early-warning-systems, no proactive problem prevention
•• High process complexity and insufficient transparency
•• Lack of substantiated decision support tools
In 2015, analytics will move to… applications that give business analysts the flexibility to define models and test them in real-time.*

Project at a truck and bus manufacturer
BearingPoint helped a truck and bus manufacturer to improve logistics perfomance and reduce inventory holding costs by using the
Factory Navigator. The key challenge was to prevent stock-outs of the material to line supply in order to ensure uninterrupted production.
Material shortages caused by inappropriate logistical configurations were recognized and corrected before the problems occurred in the
plant. Additionally, inventory holding costs were reduced by optimizing logistics parameter configurations. By using simulations, significant
saving potentials were identified on the shop floor. In order to achieve this, BearingPoint integrated the client’s SAP system, their
operational scheduling system and the Factory Navigator.

  • 2. Contents Market Drivers Our Approach Client Benefits References Contact Factory Navigator | A BearingPoint Accelerator
  • 3. Market Drivers The pressure to decrease capital costs, reduce inventory and improve manufacturing and logistics processes has never been greater. Efficient production and logistics have become a crucial success factor in many industries. Not achieving cost reduction or process innovation goals means falling behind competitors. Despite the necessity to reduce costs, logistics processes are expected to function flawlessly at minimal costs. Many companies struggle to balance these two contradicting goals. Hidden potentials remain unidentified. As a result, these companies operate on over- capacity and over-stock in order to safeguard their logistics performance. Furthermore, the complexity of today’s logistics and production processes often results in insufficient process control and inadequate decision support. ERP systems and conventional analytics software fail to create the desired transparency, nor do they contain reliable early-warning-mechanisms. Factory Navigator | A BearingPoint Accelerator

  • 12. Factory Navigator | A BearingPoint Accelerator References Project at a truck and bus manufacturer BearingPoint helped a truck and bus manufacturer to improve logistics perfomance and reduce inventory holding costs by using the Factory Navigator. The key challenge was to prevent stock-outs of the material to line supply in order to ensure uninterrupted production. Material shortages caused by inappropriate logistical configurations were recognized and corrected before the problems occurred in the plant. Additionally, inventory holding costs were reduced by optimizing logistics parameter configurations. By using simulations, significant saving potentials were identified on the shop floor. In order to achieve this, BearingPoint integrated the client’s SAP system, their operational scheduling system and the Factory Navigator.
