Abels & Kemmner receives the Top Consultant seal of approval


Herzogenrath/Aachen, 29.06.2018 – The management consultancy Abels & Kemmner has been named Top Consultant by former German President Christian Wulff at today’s 5th German SME Summit in Ludwigsburg. The Top Consultant seal of approval is awarded to management consultants who can attest to the highest level of customer satisfaction through independent market studies based on customer surveys. Abels & Kemmner specializes in advising industrial companies, branded goods manufacturers and wholesalers on the planning and scheduling of all types of goods flows.

The aim of optimal scheduling management is to deploy limited resources in such a way that the exact quantity of goods is always delivered to where it is needed – and not just on the basis of individual requirements, but in particular from the perspective of the overall efficiency of a company in an increasingly dynamic environment.

“This can mean that companies sometimes have to say no if a customer wants exotic products delivered in the shortest possible time,” explains Managing Director Prof. Dr. Götz-Andreas Kemmner. “At the same time, however, you must always be able to satisfy them with the highest level of delivery readiness and also provide plausible answers to particularly challenging requirements in order to achieve maximum customer satisfaction.”

Such a control and management system requires objectively reliable data and facts, which the consultants at Abels & Kemmner create on the basis of extensive analyses and simulation and ensure in the long term through increasingly automated processes, particularly high data quality in ERP systems and optimized planning and control algorithms. For many of their customers, the experts use a special simulation system that provides reliable data. This makes decisions more objective, reduces risks and accelerates implementation processes.

The fact that customers are satisfied with Abels & Kemmner is not only due to the company’s good consulting services. It is also due to the fact that the consulting subject of disposition management is always profitable when successfully implemented, as confirmed by Armin Klüttgen, Principal at Abels & Kemmner: “A major customer once calculated it down to the last penny and thus attested to us as an independent authority that our approach pays off, because the increased supply readiness with decreasing inventories amounted to significantly more monetary benefit after just a few months than we charged for our consulting services.”

The DISKOVER SCO software suite, one of the most powerful APS (Advanced Planning and Scheduling) systems on the market, is often an important tool. Abels & Kemmner has been continuously developing it for 20 years, now in a subsidiary founded specifically for this purpose. In line with the motto “Knowledge drives change”, the consultants also train staff in production, logistics, scheduling and supply chain management with AWF GmbH, which was acquired in 2015. All these efforts ultimately contribute to the fact that customers are so satisfied with Abels & Kemmner’s consulting services that the company has been awarded the Top Consultant seal of approval.
