BME buyers' day
Tools have a significant impact on the cost and quality of the products to be manufactured. Since high quality comes at a price, the procurement of tools is a challenge. Comprehensive cost analysis, cooperation with suppliers at an early stage as well as technical factors allow an optimal procuring strategy.
The aim of the buyers' day is to provide experts from the industry with the basis for making smart purchasing decisions.
In a short time it is shown:
- which trends did emerge in purchasing in general
- how costs are made up
- which technical trends will play a role
- in which direction mold and tool purchasing is moving due to legal changes such as the German Supply Chain Act
