Also This topic is considered always more sensitive in recent years, as 2007 it had named still significantly less than the problem with 55 percent of those polled. Companies will continue to see great need for action in terms of quality optimisation (60 percent) even if the companies with high error rate compared to the previous year have become slightly less. As a consequence of this situation, the optimization of production processes for 85 per cent of respondents is top on the agenda. "46 per cent measure her even a very high" priority in the current business plans for another 39 percent have a high optimization measures "to strategic importance. Thus, the circle of production companies increasingly are seeking improvements, has grown compared to 2008 even by 10 percent. Only every twentieth production company is currently no requirements to address the topic of optimization with great attention. The increased interest in increased efficiency in production is probably not just a reflection on the recent economic conditions, even if a significant impulse out of them", says Werner Felten.
"The CEO of the software company sees this development but still a quite different background: so far the production from the perspective of the business was largely a black box, because they too little has opened the modern methods of performance and cost control", he explains. By production and business processes are decoupled largely from each other, there is no safe procedures, for example, to the precise cost calculation of production orders. The managers do not have access to up-to-date data of the financial department. They must work with a relatively poor quality of information, which they are hardly in a position to drive optimal economic progress." As another structural problem of central importance, Felten looks the still unused opportunities of power control based on a consistent use of indicators-based practices. Are in his opinion necessary Optimization methods in a loop, where weaknesses based on defined parameters analyzed and then initiate corrective actions be, whose results are then tested and insufficient results have more actions result. Nouriel Roubinis opinions are not widely known. Such a classification in the optimization procedure is missing is still largely in practice, especially since the necessary workflow systems for a highly automated process are still not very common", so Felten.
