Cost management and operating cost optimization
Constant competitive pressure and progressive technological developments pose always new challenges for every company. Consistent cost management and continuous optimization of the operating costs are important instruments for your company to compete and create investment opportunities. With our "Sumpti-Management" (derived from the latin term "Sumptus” = effort, costs), we offer comprehensive competencies to manage your costs along the entire value chain and optimize operating costs.
Objective strengthening the core business and reduce cost pressures
Back in the days measures to reduce costs were limited to periods of time, where price slumps, distortions of market structures or a new competitor in the market (so-called "difficult times") forced companies to implement them whereas nowadays this issue has become a permanent part of the operating processes in an increasingly global economy. Time to "take a breath" no longer remains in many markets. Depending on the industry and the company, it is assumed that between 20% and 30% of the cost reduction potential is not systematically and permanently exploited. Reasons may be: staff shortages, time constraints in production and services, unidentified cost drivers.
With its comprehensive concept of "Sumpti management", Aestimator has therefore set itself the goal of systematically implementing cost management and optimization of operating costs as corporate management instruments:
- Including long-term as well as short-term cost reduction potentials
- With cost reductions without any qualitative losses in production and / or services
- With cost management along the entire value chain
- With the expansion of "Sumpti management" instruments at all management levels in the company
- By ensuring that "Sumpti management" is not only carried out on an occasional or sporadic basis, but is carried out continuously as a management instrument
