Fundamental Approach and Value Proposition
Your enterprise problems are our concern.
In the marketplace of today with ever-increasing competition, companies and organizations of today have constantly to deal with two fundamental questions:
How do we make our company as profitable as possible today?
How do we prepare our company to keep ahead of competition in the future?
These two fundamental questions emerge through a number of very specific questions of which a number will undoubtedly sound familiar, such as
How do we make this business more effective?
How do we make more money?
What do we do about complexity?
What do we do about the stuff we can’t control?
What can and can’t we automate?
Why can’t we get our strategy to be followed?
What skills do we need, where, how, why, and when?
What training do our staff need? – and for what?
How do we get more from our employees?
How do we get more from our customers?
How do we cut costs?
How do we build competitive advantage?
How do we cut complexity?
How do we get our staff to make better decisions?
How do we review our business-model, and refresh it?
Turning Problems into Profit
All such questions relate to one or more problems which cost money to and destroy value for a company. Complexity necessitates increased management and thus costs, inadequate decisions will result in likewise results and lower profit, customer-complaints can cost turnover and profit, … .
Such costs of poor quality (COPQ) would disappear if all organisations, systems, processes, products and services were perfect.
And although it is not possible to attain perfection, but if we chase it, we can catch excellence, as Vince Lombardi put it.
The most successful companies in history have reached and consolidated their success by relentlessly eliminating problems within their organization and constantly seeking operational excellence. For this purpose, companies such as Toyota, Lockheed Martin, General Electric and many others have adopted or even created and rigorously implemented methodologies, methods and tools (such as Lean Six Sigma, Toyota Production System, Operations Research, …), enabling them to optimise their processes and activities and to maximise their profits.
In their wake, companies all over the world have adopted more or less strategies to combat the cost of poor quality in order to strengthen their market position and to maximise their profit. Which is proof that it pays to strive for operational excellence.
Based on extensive business experience, proven engineering know-how and dedicated research and development in the domain of enterprise engineering, Greengineering helps you to solve these problems in an effective and efficient way, enabling you to decrease your costs and increase your profit.

Our Value Proposition
Greengineering helps you to significantly increase and optimize the performance of your organization or company in order to maximize the profit of all its stakeholders.
To put it more explicitly: Greengineering helps you to supply more and better products and services at lower cost and in less time, based on operational excellence.
The aspect of performance can be related to any specific aspect of your company (e.g. how do we reduce customer complaints), but also to your overall company (e.g. how do we make more money?).
Greengineering’s fundamental approach
The essence of our approach is the fact that we see your company as what it is: a system with a specific goal and a strategy to realize this goal.
This is the case whether your goal is to offer a new service to the market, to sell cars, to provide first class health care or to make money.
The main elements of your company are it’s people, it’s organization, it’s processes and it’s used technology.
Not only are all four of these elements necessary for any company to achieve it’s goal(s), they need to be appropriately interconnected and aligned as well as optimally tuned internally.
And that is what we do. We provide the know-how and input to (re)design and (re)engineer your organisation with the single purpose to increase its performance and its capability to realize your goals.
The heart of our approach is based on an engineered and balanced combination of methodologies such as System Theory, Business Engineering, Enterprise Architecture, Enterprise Ontology, Enterprise Domain Modeling, Enterprise Information Systems Engineering, Operations Research and Lean Six Sigma.
As each business problem has its own characteristics, we adopt a personalized approach to address it by combining these methods which are most appropriate to solve it into an effective and efficient solution.
The starting point is the question whether we are faced with a problem related to the Business-Organization, the Information-Organization or the Data-Organization of an enterprise, as defined in the DEMO-methodology. In this context, it is important to identify if the problem is related to the interaction of people, the availability of information, the functioning of systems, the definition of processes or other causes.
Once the problem is identified, it is necessary to discuss and decide which methods and tools will best used to solve the problem within the context of the organization.
Based on this decision, the necessary analysis will be done, leading to answers and solutions which will need effective implementation.
