A Concept for the Configuration of Value Added Networks Based on Quality Capabilities During Ramp-Up
The ubiquitous globalization, which opens up new markets with their specific local conditions and labor costs, as well as the increasing pressure regarding time, costs and flexibility lead to the decentralization of the value added. The resulting global value added networks, consisting of company-owned and external sites as well as logistic partners, have to be configured, operated and optimized. An important criterion for these networks is their ability to a fast and efficient ramp-up. This article presents a concept to assess and select potential value added network’s nodes (sites or external partners) according to their ramp-up performance to achieve an optimal configuration of the network.
