Here I can help you

I can help you and your company in the following areas! I always attach great importance to involving and picking up all participants, such that you will find yourself in the solutions which we develop together. 

My range of services with some examples:


Design, implementation and further developement of planning and information systems for purchasing.


Process optimization


Support in the transparent mapping of complex processes (e.g. mix of in-house production and external procurement)


Staff training

Material planning at single part and product level

  • Uniform for all production plants based on your sales figures and coordinated with the entire corporate planning
  • taking into account intercompany processes and in-house production vs. external procurement
  • broken down into single parts and suppliers (including their shares in multiple source). This enables you to communicate your required capacities and quantities to your vendors at an early stage
  • Finally, single parts planning can be consolidated at product level. Planned technical changes can also be taken into account.  → full material transparency in your planned product costs

Monthly analyses in coordination with Controlling and Accounting → no "purchasing island"

  • Price variances vs. Budget per plant / material / vendor
  • Price deviations from the contract price per plant / material / vendor
  • Highlighting currency effects
  • Material price development per end product series incl. separation between price and currency effects and technical changes
  • Payment and delivery terms

With a high-quality database, many other evaluations can also be created

  • ABC analysis by supplier, business area, plant
  • Which products contain parts from a particular supplier? Important, if this supplier should fail
  • Development of the purchasing volume with a supplier as preparation for the annual price negotiations

Material controlling before start of production

When tendering for a new customer project, you have to submit a reliable offer within a short time.

  • How can the usually largest cost block, the material, be represented efficiently and resiliently?

After winning a new customer project, it is your turn to tender required new components.

  • Transparent representation of the prices achieved
  • Follow-up of the material costs of the product both on the price level and with regard to technical changes until the start of series production

Systems and processes

  • Optimization of your material budget process
  • Introduction or optimization of a worldwide uniform commodity group structure. → Exploitation of bundling effects with suppliers
  • Support in the decision for purchasing systems. As I do not sell any such systems, the advice is 100% neutral and fact-oriented
  • Implementation of your customized purchasing system possible with both internal and external IT experts

Trainings / Courses

  • Excel training courses especially for buyers and purchasing controllers
  • Effective handling of (very) large files
  • Process training in the course of optimizing processes
  • System training after their successful implementation
