Since its foundation, the field of operations has been a core element of the INSTITUTE FOR MANAGEMENT EXCELLENCE. IMX helps its customers to become even more successful in the entire spectrum of production and logistics. Under the motto “Experienced and accomplished meets young and dynamic”, three graduates of the university of Karlsruhe joined the company in 2020 and re-established the Operations Team together with the existing experts. By combining the latest know-how and vast experience, IMX is thus always a competent partner for individual companies and entire production networks at the planning and operational level. Through the conception and design of optimized production systems and structures as well as the integrated planning and design of material and information flows in cross-departmental and cross-company logistics networks, IMX supports its customers in the establishment and expansion of strong, responsive and efficient value-added structures.
