Felcon focuses in general at three innovation categories: product, process and business model.
By narrowing our focus on a specific type of innovation, we can be a more effective and strategic innovator in cooperation with our customers.
When people think of innovation, often, they are thinking of product innovation only. Product innovation can come in three different forms:
Drivers of product innovation might be technological advancements, changes in customer requirements, or outdated product design. Product innovation is generally visible to the customer and should result in a greater demand for a product.
Process innovation is Felcon's specialism of innovation. Process is the combination of facilities, skills, and technologies used to produce, deliver, and support a product or provide a service. Within these broad categories, there are countless ways processes can improve.
Process innovation can include changes in the equipment and technology used in manufacturing (including the software used in product design and development), improvement in the equipment, techniques, and software solutions used to help in supply chain and delivery system, changes in the equipment used to sell and maintain your food processing, as well as methods used for accounting and customer service.
While product innovation is often visible to your customers, a change in process is typically only seen and valued internally. Speaking generally, changes in process reduce costs of production more often than they drive an increase in revenue. Of the three types of innovation, process is typically the lowest-risk.
Business model innovation does not necessarily imply changes in the product or even in the production process, but in the way as it is brought to the market.
Whereas both product and process innovation Felcon can be of service, business model innovation is almost always clients activities.
Felcon develops innovative machines for the food processing industry, from standalone solutions to complete production lines. We will take care of everything, from engineering to commissioning, anywhere in the world.
