The procurement includes the entire task package by the analysis of procurement markets through the selection of suppliers up to the settlement of individual procurement. Automation reduces labor costs percentage: significantly increases the importance of the holistic supply with modern manufacturing. What is the share of wage costs on the manufacturing costs, mainly depends on the degree of automation of the production. In a highly automated production, 80 percent of the manufacturing cost (excluding marketing and sales, research and development) sometimes accounted purchased services, 14 percent are investment costs, and labor costs are only barely 6 percent. In other words: If the production is highly automated (which is possible only in large quantities), the production site plays only a subordinate Role. The proximity of research and development, as well as the availability of well-qualified staff can then sometimes opt for Switzerland as a location and even cause a reverse relocation of production in our country. For example see the point of view of knowledge management, Becker, Jorg: knowledge balance sheet and business planning, ISBN 9783837075649. potential savings in purchased services: very critical but is the cost of 80 percent for purchased services. Here lies the greatest savings, because the investment costs usually only slightly different in different countries. Purchasing and procurement come to receive priority - even to jobs in the production. And an another important conclusion: savings potential with the cooperation of various companies for the purchase can be used. As a result of automation and the shift of part of the added of value to suppliers, the manufacturing in traditional industrial countries is interesting again....
