  • Securing the ramp-up volume
  • Management of product changes during ramp-up
  • Build-up new plant
  • Just-in-Sequence deliveries to OEM

  • Networking on high-level with politics and further decision takers
  • Planning and build-up of the new plant
  • Concept and realisation of assembly equipment
  • Implementation of a Just-in-Sequence Supply Chain Management concept
