Want to understand your company’s strengths and areas for improvement? Did your management decide that the company needs to become more process driven to create an environment that promotes innovation, continuous improvement and maximizes business and customer outcomes? That journey should begin with a manufacturing maturity assessment.

The major result of a such an assessment is a step-by-step plan to get to a higher maturity and therefore a better performance. With a higher manufacturing maturity, an organization is capable to better leverage the opportunities that the 4th Industrial Revolution will bring potentially.

In this one-day workshop, the participant will learn more about the essentials of the Manufacturing Maturity Model. Maturity is all about processing or manufacturing capabilities. Through practical exercises, the participants get hands-on experience how to use the model.

The Manufacturing Maturity Model can be used to assess the maturity of (part of) the own organization. With the results of such an assessment, steps can be described to get to a higher maturity and therefore a better performance. With a higher manufacturing maturity, an organization is better capable to leverage the opportunities that the 4th Industrial Revolution will bring potentially.
