Cost effectiveness along the value creation chain

Discover now the optimisation potential for your products – without cutting on quality.



Cost orientation from the outset

We have our eye on costs even when reviewing and optimising your proposals. In the course of technical optimisation, we consider materials for their suitability, quality and processing options. For this, we favour locally available materials in order to exploit time and cost effectiveness.

Production processes are streamlined and optimised. With our solutions we reduce the assembly effort, for example, by offering 2-component injection moulded parts, instead of screwing plastic. Or, we reduce the machining effort by offering semi-finished goods and blanks as alternatives.


Commercial optimisation

TCO: Transparency about the actual costs

To maintain transparency about the total cost of ownership (TCO) for you, we include, for example, the resources required for purchasing, administration and assembly, stocks and inventory costs, as well as the costs of tools and quality inspections, and we variabilise the fixed costs.

From procurement and quality inspection to efficient logistics processes, we can undertake all process steps for you. In this way, we create important freedom for your purchasing, so that you can focus on the tasks that matter.


How our customers benefit

Our customers’ implemented projects

In all projects, we achieve benefits in terms of costs, processes and quality for our customers.

Case: Door-opening system (industry: Mobility)

For a door-opening system in a public transport system, a customer was supplied with individual cast components for many years. After delivery, the individual components were assembled and tested by the company itself, in very slow and labour-intensive steps.
The outsourcing of assembly building to novia optimised the process and simultaneously achieved cost savings. For this, the assembly and quality testing using the most up-to-date testing technology was defined on site, together with the customer. Complete, quality-tested assemblies are now delivered instead, and they can be installed directly.
  • Part price optimised by ~15%+
  • Significant reduction in assembly complexity
  • Assembly process shortened considerably

Case: Modular bench seat for passenger transport (industry: Mobility)

A globally leading OEM in passenger transport had to cope with complexity and a high number of variants in the manufacture of bench seats. This resulted in high costs for the complicated, project-specific procurement of individual components from numerous external partners. The process was time-intensive and error-prone and, at the same time, had a very high working capital requirement.
By developing a modular bench seat with a great variety of versions in terms of number of places, materials, upholstery, lighting, etc., we have reduced the complexity and thereby the procurement overhead. novia received the order to manufacture the bench seats ready to install, reducing the number of production processes for our customer. By implementing a vendor-managed inventory programme at novia – with flexible call-offs up to 3x per week – the inventories were also optimised.
  • Part price optimised by ~20%+
  • Ready-to-install delivery to the assembly line
  • Significant stock reduction through vendor-managed inventory

Case: Drive casing for operating table (Industry: Medical technology)

For a drive casing for operating tables, certain areas must be electrically conductive. The customer’s concept was to mask the corresponding areas and anodise the drive casing before removing the masking wax.
To save time and money, novia adapted the process: The complete drive casing is anodised, and then the anodising is removed by laser from the areas, which have to be electrically conductive.
  • 500+ hours saved in personnel costs (per year)
  • Automated solution for de-anodising
  • (Manual) masking and de-masking unnecessary
