End users are becoming more sophisticated. They expect increasingly complex machines delivered faster and with less mistakes.
How can your team meet and exceed the expectations of your customers?
Standardization enables you to manage the complexity of automation projects by reusing proven technology.
By standardizing your solutions, you can:
Reduce engineering and commissioning costs on projects
Meet and exceed project deadlines
Hand over error free deliverables
You can standardize your solutions in three steps
Analyse current and previous machines to identify re-usable modules.
Define an architecture and the interfaces between standard modules.
Apply standardized modules in projects and collect feedback to continuously improve the quality of the modules.
Standardizing your solutions is hard. The skills required to define architectures and interfaces is very different to the skills required to design and build machines.
Many engineering managers attempt to standardize their solutions. Unfortunately, most of these engineering managers fail because they don't have the right expertise.
At KB Controls, we have more than 5 years experience of standardizing our clients' solutions. With Vanderlande, we defined the standard modules that were used to deliver large material handling systems to clients around the world. These standard modules have been used by more than 30 engineers in 3 countries to deliver 7 large projects valued at more than 200 million euros in record time,
