15 years 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 journal AUTOMOBIL PRODUKTION. The best performers in the europe-wide benchmark study are honored 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 digitalization for the international automotive industry with our initiative, which provides orientation and benchmark.

Think&Act: 50 Best Practises from 15 years Benchmarkstudy as Inspiration for Operational Excellence

Study participation

Step up to the starting line, because in 2021 Agamus Consult and AUTOMOBIL PRODUKTION are once again looking for lean plants that will meet the European benchmark on the subject of lean.
In line with our motto "Learning from the best!", we will once again come across many best practice examples of a successful symbiosis of lean and digitalization this year, which we will also make available exclusively to our study participants.
The application deadline is May 14, 2021. Participation is free of charge.

General information about the study can be found here.

This year's study is focussing on the following questions:

  • What are the success factors of Lean Production?
  • Who applies ‚Lean’ methods and strategies to what extend?
  • What are the results in terms of quality, costs and delivery performance?
  • How does the increasing digitalization of the production affect the existing production systems?
  • Which effective Industry 4.0-solutions do already exist today? What are the plans for the near future?  

Study for download (as editable PDF):

The questionnaire is built on the practical knowledge of over 800 successful Agamus projects and is further developed annually on the basis of a Lessons Learned process. Thus, it is ideally suited as template for the comprehensive measurement of one's own degree of maturity with regard to lean and digitalization.


On November 3th / 4th, 2021, the winners of the Automotive Lean Production Awards will be honored

The presentation of this year's Automotive Lean Production Awards will take place at ŠKODA AUTO, winner of the category "Special Award: Smart Digital Application OEM" 2019, in Mladá Boleslav in the Czech Republic.
