Voices of the field

"We live in very dynamic times. The wishes of our customers on the subject of delivery reliability, delivery speed and returns management are in a permanent state of flux. Accordingly, our processes must be reviewed and optimized again and again. This requires motivated employees who are open to change. Lean warehousing is an essential factor for success in logistics. This was conveyed to our employees and managers in a playful way through the impulse event. All participants were enthusiastic about the theoretical basics and the practical application."

Volker Erlewein, Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG

"After my participation in the Process Manager seminar, we developed an in-house seminar 'Lean Logistics/SCM' together with the speakers: The motto was: as much theory as necessary, as much practice as possible. The motto was: as much theory as necessary, as much practice as possible. After a day of theory, we had our employees work through and apply what they had learned in two days using a prepared B. Braun case study. The feedback: 'exhausting, but very effective - and fun, too'. As a result, we not only had maximum practical relevance, but also many ideas on how to improve our specific case study process. We will ensure the sustainability of the seminar through transfer projects, which will accompany the speakers on two follow-up days. It will definitely not have been the last training round with Fraunhofer IML."

Dr. Friederike Wenderlein, B. Braun Melsungen AG

"The Lean Administration Workshop was individually prepared by the Fraunhofer IML staff according to our problem. Despite different technical backgrounds, all participants were optimally picked up during the implementation and the requirements of the participants were expertly addressed. The result fully met our expectations."

Dr. Andreas Hucht, Head of Process Management der IMPERIAL Logistics International B.V. & Co. KG

"The good and extremely cooperative partnership with Fraunhofer IML always positively shapes such projects in our company and promotes the continuous transformation to a lean organization."

Reneé Huber, B.Braun Melsungen AG

"We were not only shown the technical current possibilities for increasing efficiency, but also solutions that are still in development and have since been pursued more closely by us. Also the profitability calculation with the exact process figures of our company was very competent and meaningful."
