Symposium about lean, QRM and Smart Business

Improving processes in practice via lean and QRM is feasible in reality. But how can your company get started? By way of an answer to this question, HAN University of Applied Sciences is organising the 'Lean-QRM-Symposium - Smart Business', which takes place on 11 June in Arnhem. Sirris will also be participating. 

Changing markets and new technologies are forcing organisations to improve their processes. This applies to internal processes as well as their business relationships with suppliers and customers. Making choices in this respect is not easy. The symposium is aimed at providing you with insight into the steps that can be taken to make continuous improvements in your manufacturing company. 

The management philosophy of 'lean manufacturing' is aimed at obtaining maximum value for the customer with the absolute minimum of wastage. Costs are reduced, which in turn leads to improved operation results, all thanks to 'lean processing'. Quick response manufacturing (QRM) can be considered as a 'lean strategy' for companies involved in producing a wide range of products with low volumes. QRM is all about reducing lead times. Applying this method, various types of companies have managed to reduce their lead times by as much as 80 to 90%! 

The symposium programme includes a keynote speech from Kramp Groep that goes into their role regarding their customers' supply chains. Pascal Pollet, QRM specialist at Sirris, presents 'Lean and QRM: What really needs to be improved?'
