17 years of Automotive Lean Production – Award & Study

'Learning from the best!' is the motto of the Automotive Lean Production Award, which Agamus Consult presents annually in cooperation with the industy magazine Automobil Produktion. The best performers in the Europe-wide benchmark study are honoured in the categories OEM, Supplier and Special Awards. We are still at the beginning of our search for the automotive factory of the future. What will a successful symbiosis of man and technology look like? Currently, the answers to future questions are being developed. With Automotive Lean Production - Award & Study, we want to actively accompany this exciting time and thus help to drive the development forward. It is our goal to establish a benchmark for lean and digitalisation for the international automotive industry with our initiative, which provides orientation and a standard.

  • What results are achieved in terms of quality, costs and
    delivery performance?

Please store the form locally before filling in details. 

The questionnaire for the initiative is based on the practical knowledge gained from over 800 successful Agamus projects and is further developed annually on the basis of a lessons learned process. It is therefore ideally suited as a template for comprehensively measuring your own maturity level with regard to lean and digitalisation.

Your questionnaire data will be stored electronically by Agamus for evaluation and will not be passed on to third parties. The use of your data for statistical purposes is exclusively anonymised. Your personal data will only be used for queries within the scope of the study. Only the company names of the award winners will be published.
