Identifying and exploiting optimization potential with clear economic benefits

We consult and support our customers in the metals industry to unlock the maximum potential on their individual digital transformation journey.

Now more than ever, the metals industry is under massive cost pressure and the key factors for competitive production are all the more relevant: a maximized equipment availability, a low specific energy consumption per ton, a minimized downgrading and scrap rate, and continuously cost-optimized production planning to deliver on time in full. The digital transformation in the metal industry is a huge opportunity and can foster companies to realize cost reduction potential in the production, increase further process efficiencies, reduce operational complexity and ensure process stability. We at SMS digital consult and support our customers to unlock the maximum potential on their individual digital transformation journey.
