adesso has established a further subsidiary for its software product business. adesso manufacturing industry solutions GmbH offers the manufacturing sector a new, innovative industry solution for smart variant management. The concept makes it possible to thoroughly optimise processes in custom manufacturing, from variant configuration, creating quotes, handling orders and planning, through to production, commissioning and service.
Special requests and customisation are business as usual in the manufacturing industry, with consumers configuring cars and furniture or planning kitchens to fit their specific needs. In the B2B sector, companies increasingly need bespoke components, machines and production equipment. Products with a large number of variants and special features are in high demand in many segments of the economy. At the same time, however, the prices for them have to remain affordable. To this end, adesso has developed a smart and flexible configuration platform that is now available from the new adesso subsidiary adesso manufacturing industry solutions GmbH.
The key to success and maintaining competitiveness in mass customisation lies in intelligent, software-supported variant configuration, which plays an essential role in fulfilling specific customer requests quickly, reliably and cost-efficiently with a high degree of automation. The industry experts at adesso know the sector’s requirements and support corporate customers with their end-to-end variant configuration so that they can manage the growing complexity in sales, planning, production and service.
adesso has a system solution for variant management and the configuration of customised products, machines and equipment that facilitates the integration of all aspects. The modular software package supports the entire value chain in the manufacturing sector, from marketing and defining the requirements at the point of sale (the customer’s place of business) to development, production planning and production management. It even provides support all the way through to commissioning and service. The result is a fully digitalised order management process with the benefits of short turnaround times and low manufacturing costs.
Managing Director Andreas Liesche talks of “customisation on an industrial scale, at prices similar to mass production”. Together with David Märte, Liesche will oversee business at the most recent adesso spin-off. Thanks to his two decades of software and consulting experience, the seasoned mechanical engineer knows the requirements in the mechanical and plant engineering sector inside and out: “Our smart variant management solution is a sophisticated system for managing complexity in the manufacturing of products, systems and solutions with a lot of variants – even for one-off production runs. Manual contract manufacturing of customised products, which is often expensive, is now finally a thing of the past.”
In addition to developing and providing the software platform, adesso also offers implementation support in connection with each individual company’s IT infrastructure and a tailored approach to product modelling. David Märte is the Co-Managing Director of the new adesso subsidiary and Head of the Manufacturing Industry Line of Business: “Our platform is based on a modular IT concept for variant configuration on the basis of cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology, plus it can be implemented and expanded bit by bit – even in harmony with the kind of existing SAP system environments that are still in use at customers’ companies.”
