Simul+- real experiment

Data­L­ab West­Sax offers your com­pa­ny the oppor­tu­ni­ty to uncov­er pre­vi­ous­ly undis­cov­ered, data-based val­ue-added poten­tials through solu­tion-ori­ent­ed and tar­get­ed through Simul+- real exper­i­ments and to cre­ate added val­ue for you.

Potential analysis

Com­pa­nies often lack con­crete data usage and imple­men­ta­tion ideas. Lack of resources or insuf­fi­cient trust are exam­ples of bar­ri­ers that pre­vent many SMEs from using exist­ing data as effi­cient­ly as pos­si­ble. Based on your inter­est as a pos­si­ble coop­er­a­tion part­ner, a poten­tial analy­sis is car­ried out in the com­pa­ny at the begin­ning, which is com­plete­ly free of charge for you due to the fund­ing of the project with­in the frame­work of the Simul+- ini­tia­tive. The project team ana­lyzes the entire busi­ness process chain for pos­si­ble start­ing points for improve­ment measures.

Every poten­tial analy­sis begins with a quick check. The goal is to effi­cient­ly famil­iar­ize with the giv­en process­es and pro­ce­dures of your com­pa­ny. The Quick Check takes place in inter­views along the order flow with pre­de­fined employ­ees. In addi­tion to the inter­views, we record the exist­ing IT and data basis of your com­pa­ny. This serves as the basis for our joint work. This is fol­lowed by the cre­ation of a net­work of key per­for­mance indi­ca­tors, which will pro­vide indi­ca­tors for tar­get­ed process improve­ments. Anoth­er com­po­nent of the Quickcheck is the exe­cu­tion of a first exam­i­na­tion of the com­pa­ny data. Devel­oped dash­boards are used for data visu­al­iza­tion and pro­vide infor­ma­tion about the cur­rent uti­liza­tion of your machines, the avail­abil­i­ty of mate­ri­als, employ­ees and oth­er inter­est­ing aspects. The Quick Check con­cludes with a pre­sen­ta­tion of the results: The process­es of the order flow are doc­u­ment­ed, ini­tial poten­tial for improve­ment is iden­ti­fied and sort­ed accord­ing to pri­or­i­ty. How­ev­er, depend­ing on the wish­es of the part­ner com­pa­ny, it is also pos­si­ble for only indi­vid­ual com­pa­ny areas to be addressed more explicitly.

The effort involved amounts to 1.5 work­ing days, with two con­sul­tants car­ry­ing out the data analy­sis in your com­pa­ny on the first day and a short­er ver­sion of the sec­ond day being used to eval­u­ate and present the results. The results of the Quick Check are then used for a joint fine-tun­ing of the project goals in the project plan. Togeth­er with you, we derive first imme­di­ate mea­sures that you can imme­di­ate­ly apply in your com­pa­ny. In addi­tion to the Quick Wins, Long Term Wins are derived, which are worked on over a longer peri­od of time. It is also pos­si­ble that you as a com­pa­ny already approach our project team with a con­crete idea for poten­tial improve­ment and that we then pro­vide tar­get­ed support.

In case of pos­i­tive feed­back from the future coop­er­a­tion part­ner, the pro­cess­ing of the Simul+ real exper­i­ment starts as soon as pos­si­ble. Depend­ing on the indi­vid­u­al­ly devel­oped project plan, the most impor­tant mile­stones are already defined at the begin­ning in order to be able to focus on them. In addi­tion, numer­ous inter­im meet­ings take place to show the first results as well as the pro­ce­dure for the Simul+ real exper­i­ment. As a coop­er­a­tion part­ner of Data­L­ab West­Sax, you have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­tribute fur­ther ideas and sug­ges­tions dur­ing the course of the exper­i­ment. In doing so, the team of Data­L­ab West­Sax accom­pa­nies you in the first steps and is sup­port­ed in the fur­ther course by the use of IT ser­vice providers in the best pos­si­ble way. Fur­ther­more, the team of Data­L­ab West­Sax can sup­port or medi­ate ser­vice providers if it goes beyond proof of concept.

The com­ple­tion of the Simul+ real exper­i­ment includ­ing all dis­cov­ered, data-based val­ue cre­ation poten­tials ini­ti­ates the imme­di­ate imple­men­ta­tion of these in your com­pa­ny. Both as a phys­i­cal lab­o­ra­to­ry in Zwick­au and as a dig­i­tal lab­o­ra­to­ry, the Data­L­ab West­sax is avail­able to you at any time.
