The tour of the Bayer LEAN Factory will be for an exclusive group of 25 people. It will showcase the process of tablet production, from weighing to pressing the tablets and all steps in between. It will take place in a large room and will be presenting small equipment in laboratory size.
The key focus will be on the lean principles and on operational excellence methods and tools. On the tour, the participants can have a look at the training facility. The group will gain an understanding of the training concepts and how these were realised it at Bayer.
To stay globally competitive, manufacturing companies need Smart Manufacturing. But what does this mean and how can it be achieved? This presentation will take the audience on a journey looking at:
The proprietary Six Theta methodology enables next-level operational excellence through predictable engineering with right first time and shorter time to market due to fewer design iterations and reduced return flow. Six Theta allows for objective measures of design quality. Your organisation will be able to identify and eliminate design weaknesses in both existing and new products, reducing development costs and enabling faster time to market. All in all resulting in a next-generation operations department. Valcon’s Six Theta design methodology has been tested on more than 500 different products and has proven applicable across industries, products and components.
Three key points from the session:
The digital revolution has deeply modified beauty consumers’ expectations: they all want to live a rich experience, both on-line and off-line, rather than to simply own beauty products. They are more connected, more informed, more impatient and want personalised beauty solutions suited to their skin types, their life styles, their aspirations. For the L’Oréal Group, Industry 4.0 is a key strategic initiative as, by combining new technologies, it will enable to meet new consumers’ needs and to contribute to the universalisation of beauty. The objective of the presentation is to illustrate that for a Group like L’Oréal, consumer experience is at the heart of the digital transformation of the operations. Industry 4.0 is almost the only way to deliver solutions that will meet new consumers’ trends and behaviours.
During the presentation, we will present L’Oréal’s vision and Operations 4.0 programme and will illustrate a few POCs implemented with different technologies. We will introduce our new smart line: a new perfume bottling line using an industry 4.0 approach leveraging new technology suppliers and combining new technologies such as video, laser measurement, robotics, connectivity, data etc. This has led to significant reductions in change-over time, energy consumption and Capex and will set the standards for the development of new lines.
This session discusses the supply chain challenges of upscaling in the manufacturing sector. Attend this session to:
The presentation will focus on critical the role that leadership plays during the implementation of change management and lean principles with the vision to implement or to improve to world class operations. All organizations need to improve the capabilities of their people, systems and processes, and when addressed intentionally through effective leadership, result in high employee engagement levels and employee behaviour changes which is essential during the strive towards world class operation.
The leaders of the organization determine the organizational culture and therefore the leadership style development of the leader is a crucial factor which, if unattended could derail the whole Lean implementation process. Stagnant leadership styles could result in defective and static stages of lean implementation, widening the gap between direction provided by the leader and implementation behaviour of employees.
Ultimately, progressive leadership styles create a climate of growth and engagement within the organization, beneficial for the journey of lean principle implementation.
