kosten senken

Our knowledge also doubles when we share it. And the concept of product and development-oriented purchases is a very pragmatic example of this. By incorporating purchaser and supplier knowledge into product development in advance, cost-defining factors at a component level can be altered early on.

  • In addition to their classic purchasing activities, purchasers thus also become product architects
  • Suppliers become system partners who apply their knowledge to product development and manufacturing

How this organisational and, most importantly, cultural change can be initiated and completed is likewise a matter of knowledge, which THESEN AG will gladly share with you:
