Abstract

The core competence of the medium-sized company, Grieshaber GmbH & Co. KG, are precision machined parts made of non-ferrous metals and stainless steels. Their focus is on the processing of aluminium alloys in medium and large series as well as in the small series range for stainless steels. Flawless quality and the reliable fulfilment of customer requirements are essential in the production of precision parts. It is therefore necessary to continuously analyse and optimise one's own processes. In processes that have been established for many years, material and resource losses often occur that are taken for granted and the costs of which, including lost added value, are not known or are not investigated. Grieshaber therefore carried out an analysis of the material and information flow in order to reveal potential points for increasing resource efficiency.
