The target group This seminar is aimed at

Our compact seminar is aimed at managers and specialists from the following areas:

Logistics, production management, process management, line managers from production and assembly, production planning and control, work preparation and workshop managers who are tasked with or interested in significantly improving their logistics processes and want to learn what design options and methods are available for this.

Effective methods of scheduling and production control.

Materials management logistics systems have been the focus of increasing interest for years as part of the design of innovative, flexible production structures. The main aims of these systems are to reduce throughput times, work in progress and stock levels and to enable production in small batches in line with customer requirements – while at the same time ensuring the availability of resources and meeting delivery deadlines. The main criteria for assessing modern control systems are “use of scarce parts stocks” and “avoidance of waste”. In contrast to classic planning and control systems, in which the individual work steps are planned in detail, pull-oriented systems require less effort. The prerequisite is the design of control loops and the creation of organizational framework conditions, such as operational standards and rules. Questions arising about how a Kanban system or FiFo is designed, which prerequisites must be created and which variant makes sense for which structure are conveyed in lecture form and through discussion. This gives participants an introduction to the ideas and strategies of the pull system, enabling them to introduce and apply pull systems in their own company.
