This time Dr. Schönheit + Partner brought together the members of the ITOS-platform “Innovation Transfer Operations Systems” on the premises of AIRBUS HELICOPTERS in Donauwörth on 22nd and 23th of September, 2016.
The first day was devoted to the presentation of the company and the visit of selected areas of production and administration focusing on the subject Industry 4.0 transformation.
The second day started with the work on the leading subject “Increase of value within the framework of Operations Systems (OPS)” with focus on the integration of Industry 4.0 in Lean Management and usability for the operations system. Here the ITOS members presented corresponding case studies of successful planning and implementation of Industry 4.0 within the own company. The subsequent exchange of experience between the ITOS members - each of them professional concerning lean management – gave decisive impulses for the future optimization of processes to the managers. Furthermore synergies out of the participant group were derived and the topic further developed. The corresponding results will be included in the configuration and introduction of an operations system (extended production system).
