Cost reduction, an area of competence where we strive to be in the forefront. ZPE, as a company has worked with cost reduction in the automotive industry over many years, this is our expertise and niche. The area is very wide but is based on the same principle, which is to streamline businesses with unnecessary high costs in mind.
Focus areas of ZPE is technical cost reduction and sourcing of competence.
Technical cost reduction includes multiple possible approaches, competences and demands/requirements depending on the project or product. Like the development of new products, you analyse material choice, design, manufacturing process to name a few. On the other hand, here you analyse already defined/industrialized solutions with the goal to optimize. What all projects have in common is the design paradox, more knowledge of the product also means less design freedom. These types of projects demand creativity and a drive that is hard to find. Over the years ZPE has developed a way of working that has shown to be effective. The competence in the company makes us strive to become the self-evident choice.
A natural part of cost reduction is also to find the right competence, through smart sourcing strategies. There is a possibility to both minimize lead times and cost for a development project. Today´s situation has shown that the global and connected world we live in, doesn´t require individuals and development teams to have the same physical working space. Development teams can be based around Europe and with the help of technology still effectively deliver results.
