Between levels 1-3, it is mostly about internal efficiency (doing things right) in the company’s design department. Once we have reached a higher internal efficiency in the design department, it is time to take advantage of this to achieve a higher external efficiency (to do the right things). Increased external efficiency facilitates the work for other departments within the company, but also aims to get closer to your customers and become better at meeting their needs and desires.
Today, the greatest potential for efficiency in manufacturing companies usually lies in the interface between the company’s business-critical systems. By integrating the systems with each other, manual steps are automated while ensuring that everyone has access to the right information. A system integration thereby minimizes the risk of making purchases and manufacturing on the wrong basis.
