Project Management

When designing complex production processes, it is essential that operational areas are integrated into the IT systems and automation processes. Our Manufacturing IT Specialists make certain that these processes are unified.

Integrated Methodology

Your partner for customized automation in the pharmaceuticals and biotech production sector

We guide you through and coordinate the implementation of your IT systems, from specifications drafting, through to standard operations and acceptance tests.

The interfaces, ERP systems (such as SAP), integration of the machinery, material flow control, and lab equipment are factored in when we draft the specifications for the individual system components to help you find the right implementation partner.

Production Logistics

The requirements on production logistics to provision work centers and ensure a smooth process are constantly growing. Increasing product variety, up to a lot size of 1, and a demand-synchronous production require the supply of materials at the precise time and in the correct quantity.

io-group supports you in planning and implementation of a stream-lined material flow – from the raw material storage, through the manufacturing and assembly production processes, to the finished goods warehouse.

We are a competent partner for our customers in the optimization of their complex material flows in all areas of production. The design of internal material transport always puts the unique process requirements of our customers in focus. We strive to implement reliable and timely availability of materials while keeping inventories as low as possible.

We develop customized solutions for optimal production supply based on your individual goals and requirements, while following a basic analysis of your current situation. The goal is to develop an integrated, future-proof concept that is specifically coordinated to the customer’s needs in each case.

Target - Oriented IT Project Management

Costs, time, and performance – these three criteria are paramount for the success of any project. Whether project goals can be met always depends on the conditions at hand and the complex interdependencies of these factors. Project managers and everyone with project responsibilities must always keep them under control at all times.

For highest possible service quality and stakeholder satisfaction alike – clients benefit from io-consultants’ wealth of experience gained in numerous successful projects.
