Cause Analysis And Problem Solving In Quality Emergencies

Increasing warranty expenses and recourse claims as well as recall campaigns are an almost daily occurrence in the automotive industry – and are associated with enormous costs and lasting damage to the image of manufacturers and their system suppliers. In recent years, significantly more cars were recalled than ever before.

Administration today has to provide flexible support for the Lean value stream – and at the same time cope with increasing complexity and constantly increasing internationalisation. Challenges that were traditionally met with an increase in personnel now have to be overcome with the use of new IT tools, adapted organisational structures and continuously optimised processes. Lean Administration shapes the processes that support value creation and operate in accordance with Lean logic and methods. Potentials in administration are not obvious but have to be developed through analysis and process optimisation as well as through effective communication and management.

Shop Floor Management

Shop Floor Management supports the consistent and sustainable development of processes and procedures at the point of origin. The presence of management in the production areas and their focus upon standard deviations enable decisions to be sped up and employees to be developed into improvement managers.
Brochures / Consulting Services


Shop Floor Management, on-site leadership, finds its way to all business areas. The presence of the responsible manager and the consistent and sustained development of processes gains importance. The focus on deviations and the direct path towards problem solution delivers clear benefits and results. However, conventional Shop Floor Management reaches its limit managing global processes and projects. The fragmentation of the value added chain of geographically dispersed teams hampers communication, leadership processes, the provision, and the necessary transparency.
Brochures / Consulting Services


Problem solving as part of our Quality Excellence approach focuses on the rapid identification of causes for quality deviations. Depending on the complexity of the problem, these are addressed with specific methods.
