Training mission to Japan on World Class Manufacturing

From 22 to 26 June, the EU-Japan Centre is organising a 5-day intensive training mission for European executives familiar with World Class Manufacturing. The programme consists of various lectures and visits to a number of leading Japanese companies in order to improve productivity and lower production costs.

The aim of the trip is to give the participants a thorough understanding of Japanese production methods, such as TQC (total quality control), TQM (total quality management), TPM (total productive maintenance), JIT (just in time) and TIE (total industrial engineering), lean, ... in addition to a lot of other business aspects.   

By way of lectures, workshops and company visits to the world’s most advanced manufacturing companies, active in chemicals and plastics, mechanical engineering, steel products and automotive, participants will be able to see for themselves how Japanese companies are successful thanks to the application of World Class Manufacturing principles to production, costs, quality management, customer relations and staff.   

This training mission is aimed at European managers in the manufacturing sector who are familiar with WCM and have a technical background. Further information about the trip, the conditions and registration is available here. If you want to participate, please register before 19 March.
