Barilla wants to align its twenty-eight production sites worldwide to Industry 4.0. To this end, Porsche Consulting assisted the long-established company with a pilot project at the world's largest pasta factory: Barilla’s headquarters in the northern Italian city of Parma. Robots, automatic guided vehicles, and real-time data are the cornerstones of pasta production here—but people are the decisive factor. "Porsche Consulting's approach is a perfect fit for us, because it focuses on people," says Antonio Copercini, Chief Group Supply Chain Officer.
The construction industry cannot keep up with the demand for housing. This is largely because construction sites are not efficient enough. New technologies and business models could succeed in cutting this Gordian knot.
When – seemingly overnight – a pandemic changed the way the world worked, Porsche’s consultants had to come up with clever ways to complete projects without letting clients down.
