Reduction of material costs and increase in EBIT
- Do you want to know the cost structure of your purchased parts, use the cost drivers of external value creation to find levers for cost reduction – develop ideas for optimization and cost reduction from these?
- Do you want to know how your suppliers do their costing, which raw materials costs are reasonable, which salary and overhead rates are normal? - Do you want to enter into negotiations with detailed knowledge about the purchased-part costs? We draw on over 1200 loan data sets, broken down over 120 sectors, countries and regions.
- Are you looking for optimization opportunities and methods for products, prices and processes? Today, 70-80% of your value creation is generated by external suppliers. This is a cost factor you can only influence through negotiation and changes to your products – are the factors influencing cost transparent for you? And do you know how to deal with them?
We emphasize actively integrating your suppliers within the optimization process (for example through process analyses and brainstorming workshops on-site). Experience in this is drawn from many years in the automotive industry and in the supplier environment.
- Do you want to know what your own products cost? Costing is based on industry-standard benchmark data or on your actual (current) costs.
