MTM – Work design productive and safe

MTM-HWD® passes practical test at Miele – rollout is now planned

The partners of the Human Work Design (HWD®) development project have been involved in gathering practical experience with the new MTM-HWD® building block system since last year; it combines methodical and ergonomic work design in just one stage for the very first time. The pilot scheme was successfully completed at Miele & Cie. KG in April 2016, after it had run for one year. Ralf Graute from the Industrial Engineering department at the factory in Gütersloh reported on the results and experience gained from the test phase at the 16th TiCon User Meeting in Dresden. He concluded that MTM-HWD® will enable corporations to productively make use of older employees on synchronized flow assembly lines.
