Future of panelbuilding & switchgear manufacturing

It is no secret that competition in industrial and manufacturing environments is fierce. Technological advances, modern automated equipment and wide access to information, have in many ways leveled the playing field, which means that only the truly tenacious can now stand out from the crowd. To optimize the performance of a company, one must scrutinize its processes, particularly processes that have been used with very little alteration over a long period of time. By combining value-enhancing process steps in engineering, design, work preparation, production and maintenance, it is possible to create a sound foundation for all efficiency improvements. This is the value chain, a business model that describes the full range of activities needed to create a product or service.
