Kardex Deutschland GmbH - When Cost Optimization Is No Longer an Option – Increasing Value through Value Management

Shuttle XP Vertical Lift

Kardex Remstar has managed to further optimize this storage principle with its products and is the market leader in the segment of dynamic storage systems. One of the steps the Kardex Remstar company has taken to counteract this trend is optimizing the costs of manufacturing the Shuttle XP series through a value analysis project. The clients were aware of the fact that the aim of reducing manufacturing costs for this product by 15% was extremely ambitious and the hopes of success with conventional means rather low.
