'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.
