Value engineering for brand programmes
The concept of value engineering was introduced by General Electric during the Second World War bringing a focus to product development based on ‘value’, a ratio of function and cost.
Today value engineering is at the core of all GLIMMA’s brand programmes. This discipline ensures that the total cost of ownership for a solution is considered at every step from ordering, through materials selection, to installation and support.
Driving down overhead - Project management, process & planning
Geared to ensure consistent, cost effective delivery globally, GLIMMA’s systems and processes minimise programme overheads for clients. Online access to GLIMMA’s project management systems provides up to the minute information on even the most complex multi-national rollouts, while online ordering makes it simple and cost effective to devolve ordering & scheduling to local offices.
Minimising risk - Materials & production
Delivery, application, environment, planned life span and even disposal are key considerations for GLIMMA’s team when they define aspects such as materials, production processes and the factory location.
GLIMMA’s approach of central management and local production means the vagaries of multi-national materials specifications, production processes and even health and safety on site are eliminated as programme risks.
Controlling costs - Installation & support
Installation and maintenance costs are key aspects impacting total cost of ownership. That is why GLIMMA consider every detail to minimise costs over the life time of the solution including installer training, vehicle or premises down time and the durability of graphic elements in harsh environments.
