'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.

Congress 2020

The 15th Automotive Lean Production Congress will take us to Spain next year. The Iveco Valladolid - Award Winner 2019 in the “OEM” category - is pleased to be the host of the Congress 2020.

Study Participation 2020

Due to the current situation, we have extended the deadline for our Automotive Lean Production initiative - 
Award & Study until May 15th, 2020.
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?  

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.
