How to improve productivity and reduce costs in manufacturing!

The EU-Japan Centre is currently calling for applications for the next 5-day World Class Manufacturing training mission in Japan. This programme is funded by the European Commission.

Since the first edition in 1992, more than 700 participants from across all EU Member states have participated in this practical training course.

The 5-day World Class Manufacturing training mission provides an in-depth analysis of Japanese manufacturing methodology and is aimed exclusively at EU managers with knowledge of WCM and an engineering background. It assists the participants to acquire a better understanding of TQC (Total Quality Control), TQM (Total Quality Management), TPM (Total Productive Maintenance), JIT (Just In Time), TIE (Total Industrial Engineering) practices and the current KAIZEN manufacturing methods (continuous improvement).

The training course consists of lectures, workshops and visits to some of the world’s most advanced Japanese factories in order to understand the real "Gemba" (production site), talk directly with their production managers and observe the effective implementation of manufacturing methods.

This course will give its participants a detailed understanding of current Japanese approaches that they can adapt to help their companies lean journeys.

The training dates in Japan are; 18th - 22nd November 2019.

The application deadline is Thursday, 4th July 2019

The programme provides:

* In-depth analysis of Japanese manufacturing methodology

* Lectures, seminars and panel discussions, presented by experts from Japanese industry

* Company and factory floor (Gemba) visits

* Preparation and post-visit reviews

The target delegates are EU managers working in manufacturing companies and with knowledge of World Class Manufacturing and an engineering background.

Special support for SMEs: No tuition fee and the European Commission grants Euro 600 to participants from SMEs.
