Siemens, Miele, Brose and Others Test MTM-ProKonE

Is it possible to influence the ergonomic risks in a production process as early as the design phase? Is it possible to prevent costs during the product development stage? The partners involved in the MTM-ProKonE development project – Miele & Cie. KG Gütersloh (white goods), Brose (automotive) and Deutsche MTM-Vereinigung e. V. – have clearly given a positive response to these questions. Following successful practical tests, the new MTM method, which combines the MTM-based process for production-oriented design (ProKon) with the ergonomic assessment based on EAWS (Ergonomic Assessment Worksheet), has attracted great interest from other corporations too. After all, MTM-ProKonE (production-oriented design ergonomics) enables users to evaluate both ease of assembly for a product and the ergonomic risk inherent in the assembly process as early as the development or design phase and therefore prevent costs associated with introducing improvements at a later stage.

Kostal: Strengthening Employees’ Digital Skills

18.12.2018
The challenges of the future are many and varied – not just with a view to digitalizing industrial production. The work content in manual assembly operations with partially automated areas is becoming more and more extensive and complex too, learning times are becoming shorter, the working environment is becoming more interdisciplinary and the scope for making decisions is greater. The partners involved in the PALM4.Q project on process-oriented and work-related learning in assembly operations – Leopold Kostal GmbH & Co. KG in Lüdenscheid und Deutsche MTM-Vereinigung e. V. – are working on a system to identify what kind of digital skills are required for various groups of employees.

"Excellent Lean Production - The Way to Business Sustainability"

“Excellent Lean Production – The Way to Business Sustainability” is the title of the book written by Dr. Norman Roth and Carsten zur Steege, which has now appeared in English at the German MTM Association’s own publishing house. The two internationally renowned managers have combined the classic lean ideas with the principles of the EFQM business excellence model to form a new model called Excellent Lean Production (ELP). This course of action for implementing a sustainable production system means that lean production and traditional industrial engineering now move even closer together.
