TP Concept Study, a solid foundation for decisions

With complex or new production processes, it is advisable to research the matter before making investment proposals for production automation. For such situations, the TP Concept Study developed. An
TP Concept Study is the basis for the right investment application for an optimal production or assembly facility.

It is especially important in the phase prior to the investment to deploy experience and expertise in the field of process optimisation. You have come to the right place for that.

Customer needs central

In order to be able to advise on a suitable production set-up, it must first of all be clear what need lies behind the automation wish.

Advice based on your automation motive

For example, you may want to automate to improve working conditions or as a solution for staff shortages. But it may also be the case that production needs to be more efficient in order to shorten delivery times, better guarantee product quality or reduce the cost price.

Course Of Action

Oriëntatie fase

1. Orientation phase

The production problem as a starting point

Your production issue is the starting point of our advice. We are very practical about that.

With our expertise and experience in the field of production optimization, we can think along in all parts of the production process.

Mapping waste

We then analyze the entire production process together. With every action we ask ourselves whether it actually adds value to the product. We then look for the most logical production setup. In this way, all wastes are mapped and we arrive at insights and creative ideas.

Concept fase

2. concept phase

At this stage we work out the findings from the orientation phase in the form of analyses, descriptions, calculations and a concept design in a 3D model.

3. reporting

TP Concept Study for a well-founded Go/No-Go

The final report shows the difference between the current and the desired situation with associated performance. Depending on the case, the following components are delivered:

  • Description of the concept
  • 3D models
  • Investment overview
  • Implementation plan
  • Process flow overviews
  • Cycle time overviews

The advice resulting from our research guarantees a solid basis on which the right decisions can be made to arrive at an optimal production or assembly setup.

TP Concept Study as a separate assignment

Today we see that our customers are increasingly opting for the option of providing the TP Concept Study as a separate assignment. This in anticipation of the eventual project realization.

Reduce risk without additional costs

Not only is the investment and therefore the risk smaller for the moment. The total project investment, including implementation, will not increase.

Limited delay

This reduces the delay at the start of the project.

In addition, the essential advantages of a concept study can be fully exploited.

Think of:

  • Optimal return on investment (ROI)
  • An optimal interpretation of your productivity and quality issues, also based on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • A concept widely supported within your organization.

In addition, it gives you optimal insight into the expected results.
