how to modularize and standardize to reduce costs
free Live STREAMING | 15/02/2023 – 5:00 p.m. | BONFIGLIOLI and PAMA
For years we have been in a so-called customer market and one characterized by increasing dynamism. In order to remain competitive, many companies try to differentiate themselves and be chosen for the high customization possibilities of the products they offer. In this way, they more easily meet the customer’s needs and desires in order to win the customer’s trust.
Offering a very wide range of products, each with numerous options available, means generating a large proliferation of product variants, whose production, logistical, warehousing, technical and sometimes personal costs in terms of stress are very high.
Therefore, it is clear that, unable and unwilling to reduce external variety, given its benefits in terms of customer satisfaction and the fact that it is now inevitable in the context of the rapid emergence of new products and new versions, it is necessary to reduce internal variety.
The first step is to measure the past and future costs of variant management. Only then can strategies to reduce them be defined.
However, is it possible to maintain functionality, expected performance, and value for the customer client?
Standardization and modularization are one answer: they lay the foundation for providing customized answers in terms of function and customer value without necessarily generating a proliferation of variants.
Thus, cost and differentiation benefits are simultaneously secured: the manufacturer achieves cost savings and better product performance, and the customer has access to a wide variety of offerings and sees his or her needs met at sustainable prices.
