Cost reductions on proximity switches, best-case calculations 
Our client is a leading global manufacturer of proximity switches and sensors.

The goal is to reduce the production costs for metal sleeves by more than 30%.

- Specify the reference sleeves. 
- Identify the best possible, most modern production facilities
  for the entire range of sleeves.

- Evaluate the quotations.
- Draw up business plans for various locations.
- Carry out simulations for different boundary conditions.
