Ambition: Design future global operational footprint for sustainable growth



  • Establish an integrated view on the global footprint for “consumables” AND “capital equipment”

  • Develop a “dynamic” business case capturing all relevant key value drivers and cost drivers
  • Develop dynamic scenarios allowing sensitivity analysis based on adjusted key assumptions (e.g. future acquisitions)
  • Develop future scenarios and final recommendation


Key results:

  • Current Network and Future Trends reviewed
  • Future global footprint vision developed
  • Data modeling and benefit case defined
  • Strategic Footprint Scenarios developed and evaluated
  • Detailed Scenario Evaluation, Prioritization & Selection
  • Detailed Evaluation and Implementation Plan
