MotionMiners process consulting and logistics consulting

MotionMiners offers logistics consulting and process consulting for logistics and production and healthcare from a single source. Each year, our logistics consulting and process consulting consultants execute more than 20 projects for large and mid-sized companies. For this purpose, our process consultants are deployed in around 12 countries. Reduced costs as well as more efficient processes and improved working conditions are typical results of our projects.


Optimal process consulting - from the process survey to the optimization catalog

Logistics consulting and process consulting are as much a part of MotionMiners as customizing. Processes, structures and systems are analyzed and optimized across the board with the help of Motion Mining® technology. This is how we create measurable success for our customers with our logistics consulting and process consulting services.

MotionMiners process consulting aims to implement the best solution for each customer. Every customer and every project is unique, so customized solutions are a matter of course for us. In doing so, we rely on both proven methods and innovative approaches.


A holistic view of logistics consulting

Successful solutions require a holistic consulting approach. MotionMiners has extensive expertise, industry knowledge and experience. Our process consultants are also logistics specialists. What's important to us: a close partnership with the client's team right from the start to ensure the sustainability of the measures.


Methodical-analytical process consulting

Using Motion-Mining® technology, our logistics consulting firm methodically and analytically determines the existing manual processes and thus works out the possible control letters for an optimized process.

The type, number, and regional location of a company's logistics centers determine the level of service, transport, and warehouse location costs. A whole series of influencing variables must be taken into account. For example, the location costs of a logistics center are analyzed by our logistics consulting Depending on factors such as the degree of automation of a warehouse or production facility, and the labor cost level as well as operational requirements, our process consulting develops individual and customized solutions.

In our process consulting and logistics consulting, we generally perform a data-based analysis and benchmarking of the existing logistics. For this we use Motion-Mining®. In this process, employees are equipped with three sensors each over a few weeks and recorded anonymously. In addition to individual activity and location data, ergonomic data can also be collected in this way. The individual processes are automatically distinguished and differentiated from each other by an artificial intelligence. Our logistics consulting and process consulting can then analyze this data in greater depth in order to develop efficiency optimizations and ergonomic improvements.

In addition to transport costs, operational costs and the performance of the infrastructure, we look in particular at the resulting workloads, distances and waiting times.

As a team and together with the customer, our logistics consulting and process consulting designs alternative future scenarios. We always select solutions individually and tailored to the customer and the respective process. Using mathematical methods, we calculate the payback period and the ROI of the respective solutions.


Customer benefits of working with MotionMiners process consulting and logistics consulting services

Within the scope of motion mining projects, key values for an optimized logistics location are determined in a very short period of time. For you as a customer, the following advantages result from the cooperation with:

- Uniform understanding of future manual processes

- Rough estimation of personnel and investments allows statements on the economic efficiency of existing and future logistics processing

- Basis for strategic decisions, to initiate or continue projects

- Rapid creation of transparency as well as analysis of transport costs and structures

- Evaluation and benchmarking of transport costs- Identification and coordination of potential areas

- Development and definition of measures- Extensive data set of your manual work processes collected by means of Motion-Mining®

- Holistic consideration of the efficiency and ergonomics of your locations/processes


Uncovering logistics costs thanks to logistics consulting

For many companies, optimizing logistics costs while maintaining a competitive service level is a major lever for improving profitability.

Logistics costs are a significant component of total costs regardless of industry. At the same time, they are often predominantly variable, which can be used to achieve rapid and noticeable cost reductions. Thanks to Motion-Mining®, processes can be recorded and analyzed quickly and easily. As a rule, employees are measured for just two weeks, automatically using sensors and artificial intelligence. This allows our customers to react quickly to changing logistics and production environments. Through targeted projects with our logistics consulting, the use of motion mining and optional customizing, MotionMiners process consulting supports the sustainable optimization of logistics costs.


Cost reduction thanks to process consulting

There is potential for savings along the entire supply chain. MotionMiners has many years of experience in the comprehensive optimization of logistics costs. With a holistic approach, Motion-Mining® collects and identifies weak points thanks to extensive data sets. This enables the development of customized solutions to reduce costs. Our process consulting services support companies in all industries in reducing their process costs. In addition to direct cost reduction, the focus is also on sustainable cost avoidance measures. In this way, costs can be reduced by around 15 percent. In individual projects, savings amounted to up to 40 percent.

In the future, logistics costs will continue to rise, for example, due to increasingly complex global supply chains, strong volume growth or new locations, products and markets.

Typical symptoms of great potential in logistics consulting are poorly utilized transports, long waiting times or a poor routing strategy. MotionMiners process consulting will be happy to support you in developing efficiency improvements.


The motion mining product solution complements our process consulting services

Would you prefer to carry out Motion-Mining® projects yourself instead of using our process consulting and logistics consulting services? With Manual Process Intelligence (MPI), we have the right solution for you. MPI enables you to analyze your manual processes quickly and easily, independently and whenever you want.

Your processes are automatically recorded with the help of sensors that your employees wear on their wrists and belts for a period of one to two weeks. These sensors do not influence your employees in their daily work. In addition, Motion Mining® technology is a solution that does not collect personal data. This means that the GDPR does not apply. The ergonomics data collected in this way is automatically linked to location data, thanks to a beacon network system. Beacons are small Bluetooth transmitters that can be quickly placed in the warehouse or production area and function like a dedicated (indoor) GPS system.

The data collected in this way is automatically analyzed by an artificial intelligence system. This currently recognizes more than 50 different activities, such as walking, driving, picking, carrying but also for example healthy and unhealthy lifting of goods. If you have activities that are not yet included in our catalog, we can add more activities to our artificial intelligence thanks to the machine learning process.

The data is presented in a visual dashboard. This allows your in-house process consultants, logistics consultants or process engineers to independently identify and leverage efficiency and ergonomics potential.
