How do you get a successful One-Piece-Flow overview? How do you build the bridge between your sales organization and your production facility? And how do you even involve the customer in your own production process?
These questions and many more will be answered on Tuesday 13 November 2018 in the Open Manufacturing Campus (OMC), the innovation hotspot for production companies situated at the Philips production site in Turnhout, Belgium.
The sessions will be given in the Dutch language.
Expect an inspiring afternoon where Krohne demonstrates how making information flows transparent will result in improvement on production times and delivery processes. Based on practical examples from leading production companies, Krohne will demonstrate how you can improve the efficiency of your manufacturing company and reduce your lead times. Moreover, we also focus on how we can better meet the expectations of the customer thanks to innovative information technology. Last but not least, we pay attention to the importance of change management within your organization. Because a good solution only works when end-users are involved and when they are positive about it.
An inspiring afternoon about speeding up information flows, connecting people in real-time, improving production processes and meeting customer expectations.
