Material Efficiency Workshop
Material is one of the largest cost blocks in the manufacturing industry. Especially in the films, paper and nonwoven manufacturing and converting industry this cost block acounts for 50-60% of total costs and lies higher than the 45% average in the industry. Improvements in this specific sector have an high impact on the possible return and strengthen the competitive position.
GRASS enables the realisation of efficiency and effectivity improvements through the optimization of material costs. This can be achieved for instance through more efficient recycling processes, better utilization of machines and optimized cross-value-chain production processes.
With its business unit TECH CONSULTING GRASS develops together with its customers and through the help of synergy effects in the areas LEAN CONSULTING and MES-SOLUTIONS a comprehensive concept for sustainably increasing material efficiency in production processes.
Saving potentials in the areas of material costs lie normally in the range of 1-3% and have a benefit/cost ratio of 3:1.

Overview of topics:
- Evaluation of the production factors - material costs as the most important factor
- Unused potential for operating revenues
- Easy start for significant improvements
- The right approach: Proven and implemented many times
- Practical examples from industry
At approx. 60%, material costs represent the largest cost block in roll manufacturing and converting. While efficiency-enhancing measures are currently mostly focused on energy requirements, the potential for optimizing material costs remains untapped. The improvement of material costs is the greatest lever for improving the company's profits - This results in effects with high returns.
