It’s a dilemma you’ve probably been in yourself. A large number of manufacturing companies are operating in a market that is increasingly on edge. Since the demand from customers for products that can be configured individually and purchased at a competitive price is growing, your manufacturing company has to offer more and more variants of its products. This greatly increases the complexity and cost of your planning and production, leaving you with declining profitability and lower margins.
Is variant management the solution here?
Yes, because variant management is the starting point for overcoming the complexity of products, systems and solutions for which there is a large number of variants. Good variant management, modular systems and configurable products provide assistance. Processing orders manually is often no longer cost efficient due to the constantly increasing complexity of them.
