Changes at production companies

However, a lot has changed in recent decades in the field of controlling and managing production processes, and production organizations, due to market demands and the pressure on the processes from the perspective of cost control and cost development. Competition both nationally and internationally has increased enormously, and product prices are under constant pressure. No longer do production organizations make and sell only one product or one type of product, but often a whole range of different end products and variants to overcome that competition.  Leading not just to a few hundred article numbers, but thousands, if not tens of thousands. Besides that, they are also forced to produce at the lowest possible cost and pass on the price advantage to their customers in order to maintain their market share.
