about this bookdeutsch english The plant engineering sector is characterized by increasing competition and low profit margins. In order to stay competitive in a globalized business, German plant manufacturers identified engineering processes as a lever to improve their profitability. This book presents a methodology which allows engineering organizations to systematically evaluate the profitability of engineering departments as well as to improve engineering by standardization programs. The first part describes the role of engineering in the industrial value chain and analyzes the applicability of current evaluation approaches. In addition, a systemic model is developed which makes the role and interdependences of engineering transparent for decision makers and helps to determine evaluation parameters of engineering profitability. The second part examines improvement measures with a special focus on modularization and standardization approaches. On the basis of six industrial case studies best practices and lessons learned for standardization programs are identified and transferred into a practical guideline. The guideline provides engineering organizations with a tool for the systematic planning and analysis of standardization programs.
