Development of a new logistics concept for a high-tech mechanical engineering company

How can an expanding medium-sized company cope with an increasing number of product variants and increasingly complex client requirements, such as next-day delivery? State-of-the-art logistics is a key component of the solution. BLSG supported a German hidden champion in meeting this challenge.


High-tech engineering company


Use of state-of-the-art logistics to deal with the increasing number of product variants and increasingly complex customer requirements (next-day delivery)


Logistics-adapted value stream and KPI analysis on site (as-is analysis)

Iterative planning of the individual concept components (warehouse functions and production supply)

Procedural model: Regular coordination (1.5 weeks) of the interim results with the client to enable result acceptance


Development of a rough concept for future in-house logistics:

  • Consolidation and automation of all semi-finished and finished goods warehouses
  • Centralisation of the entire internal turnover of goods
  • Standardisation of supply and disposal processes in production

Implementation of the key changes through a migration concept with several evolutionary stages: creation of transparency, efficiency and optimisations in interface areas
