Engineering & Design
To accelerate their transition to the circular economy, manufacturing companies must prioritize sustainable design, material selection and sourcing, and remanufacturing. This approach offers a unique opportunity for organizations to reduce their environmental impact while realizing cost savings, generating new revenue streams, and gaining a competitive edge.
We help companies reevaluate their engineering and design approach to successfully adopt circular economy business models. By optimizing product design to extend the product lifecycle and leveraging machine learning and AI, we help companies achieve more efficient raw material consumption. Our ultimate goal is to facilitate the necessary transformation for businesses to thrive in a circular economy.
Project Portfolio Management
Product lifecycle management is a crucial aspect of the engineering department's work. It involves providing them with the appropriate tools to manage various aspects of the project, such as the project portfolio, resource optimization and management, product collaboration, and data simulation.
By using the right tools and strategies, the engineering department can more effectively manage projects and resources, collaborate with colleagues and external partners, and simulate various scenarios to test product design and performance. This enables them to make more informed decisions and ensure that the products they develop are of the highest quality and meet the needs of their customers.
Design for Disassembly
To minimize waste and maximize material reuse companies need to design products with end-of-life considerations in mind. Design for Disassembly (DfD) strategies enable easier dismantling, component reuse, and material recycling.
By incorporating these principles into product design, organizations can not only reduce their environmental impact but also realize cost savings through efficient material use.
Product Traceability and Network Integration
The circular economy approach aims to reduce waste and increase resource efficiency by designing products that can be reused, repaired, and recycled at the end of their lifecycle.
This requires processes and technologies that can support the tracking and tracing of product components and materials, as well as the management of reverse logistics and end-of-life processes. Additionally, IT systems need to be capable of integrating with the entire ecosystem and sharing data across the value chain to facilitate collaboration and transparency.
Product Sustainability and Compliance
Optimizing the design of a product while considering raw material usage, component sustainability, and sustainable production strategies is critical.
Doing so ensures that the procurement of raw materials is streamlined, the product lifecycle is maximized, and product costs are improved. Therefore, it is essential for companies to prioritize sustainability throughout the entire production process.
Servitization is a primary enabler of Circular Economy, and surely one of the top strategies for companies who are willing to increase their profitability while being sustainable. As-a-service business models allow the shift from selling a product, to selling the value of that asset to users in need.
We help companies explore this opportunity - from the analysis of their current business models and operations, to the design and actual implementation of new as-a-service models, leveraging digital technologies and our proprietary methodology to activate new revenue streams.
Industry 4.0 is a well-known concept, yet only a few companies have taken action despite seeing its potential value. Digital technologies are completely remodeling industrial production processes, providing greater flexibility, increased productivity and higher quality.
We guide companies in the transition towards their “Future Factories”, starting with people across the enterprise and, only then, focusing on the technologies that could be more helpful to support employees working with complex equipment and processes and ultimately, to do more with less.
People’s lives revolve around interactions – with other people, brands, products and devices. In a world where the line between digital and physical is extremely blurred, organizations must design and deliver meaningful, next-level customer experiences in order to stay relevant and keep growing.
Bringing together a passion for data, design, technology and customers, we help companies model end-to-end experiences in the phygital world, reimagining their Sales, Marketing and Services digital platforms through a human-centered approach.
To achieve real intelligent automation, an enterprise-wide approach is required - which means designing around people and technologies simultaneously.
Leveraging our approach and technological expertise, we help companies build solutions to achieve quality Augmented-Humans at scale, empowering their employees and letting them focus where they can make a real difference.
Your people’s knowledge is an incredible (often underrated) resource to leverage - if guided with the right approach, it’s your own people who will make innovation happen.
We have developed a proprietary methodology to work with both people and technology: let us help you develop and launch MVPs, according to the Learning-by-doing concept, and deploy your innovation in the most effective way
Get your team aligned with the latest technologies, through our interactive workshops! This journey, tailored to your industry and needs, shows real use cases and practical examples about how emerging technologies can represent a competitive advantage for your company.
A perfect first step to start all-around company-wide digital transformation as well as area-specific digitization processes.
We tailor our approach to each customer's unique situation - this allows us to develop and execute a strategic roadmap that leverages technology innovation to create value. By considering our customer's current scenario, we ensure that our solutions are customized and effective in achieving their specific goals.
Transformation Strategy Development
We work with our customers to understand their unique transformation needs and develop a strategy that supports both their short-term goals and long-term scalability. Our process begins with a comprehensive assessment of manufacturing operations, from processes to equipment and data management systems. This enables us to identify areas that present opportunities for improvement and determine a strategic roadmap to achieve these goals.
Once we have identified areas for improvement, we work with our clients to develop a strategy that integrates smart manufacturing technologies into their operations, taking into account short term strategy, while also being capable of scaling with the business in the long term. This includes the deployment of IoT technologies to enable more effective integration, predictive maintenance and real-time data analytics.
After establishing the proper technology infrastructure, we prioritize optimizing manufacturing processes to maximize efficiency and predictability. Our approach involves collaborating with our customers to streamline workflows, eliminate bottlenecks, and optimize scheduling and production planning. By identifying areas for improvement and implementing best practices, we help our clients achieve optimal operational efficiency and increase their competitiveness in the marketplace.
“I did not know that was possible” is one of the most common outcomes of a conversation between a business team with a need and a Technology Expert.
That’s why Digital Technology Enablement is so critical: by showing use cases and real examples of technology applied, we lay the foundation for concrete incremental innovation development – ultimately empowering the business with technology as a force multiplier.
Digital Transformation is about using technology to transform business processes, models, and organizations.
It is about using the insights brought both by users and technology to envision new business models, markets, and more efficient ways of attracting, engaging, and delivering value to customers.
Focusing on people rather than processes or technologies, allows to envision lean solutions truly built around their business needs, maximizing benefits and accelerating adoption.
The beNIMBL Loop is a proprietary methodology designed to maximize the alignment between people and technology, helping companies introduce fast, tangible, and impactful innovations.
Six different variants have been tailored for specific scenarios and industries according to people and company objectives.
