Excursion to company Schäffler in Berndorf

The 7th group of the Professional MBA Automotive Industry started in October 2015. Participants of this group finished already most of lectures and started preparing a Master’s Thesis.

On December 15, 2016 an excursion to an Austrian Company ”Schäffler”  in Berndorf took place. The Schäffler group is one of successful global automotive suppliers. The company is producing high-precision components and systems in engine, transmission, and chassis applications as well as rolling and plain bearing solutions for a large number of industrial applications.

The excursion starts with the company presentation and description of lean production process. With the implementation of the new lean production process the company can produce 6 times more products with the same amount of the employees 10 years before.  The company introduced the transparent data system, it means that at every place in the factory there is a screen which shows the whole information of the factory. During the guided tour participants can see the transparent data system, training program and others. Participants were very impressed the process of the company.

The participants and the program management thank to Schäffler for the tour and fruitful discussions.
