Review of the Congress 2023

Dr. Milan Nedeljković, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Production, added: “The DNA of the BMW iFACTORY is already making itself felt at Plant Dingolfing – and winning the Automotive Lean Production Award proves it. Our masterplan for the future of production is called LEAN. GREEN. DIGITAL., and it’s the strategic vision of our global production network. The beating heart of the BMW iFACTORY is the employees, so I’d like to warmly congratulate them on winning this award. As in all of our plants, it’s them that shape the transformation process.



Innovative solutions based on Lean and Digitalisation were the cornerstones of the 17th international Automotive Lean Production congress on 14th and 15th of November 2023 in Munich and Dingolfing, Germany. Next to visionary keynotes and an exclusive plant tour through the BMW Group Plant Dingolfing, Agamus and Automobil Produktion awarded the best European plants with the prestigious Automotive Lean Production Awards based on the corresponding benchmark study during a festive awards ceremony. 

During the two day event at the BMW Welt Munich and the BMW Group Plant Dingolfing, the winners of the different award categories received their honors and presented their best-of-class implementations to the audience.
