MTM – Work design productive and safe

Saxony and Westphalia MTM/IE Regional Group Meetings

Focusing on Time Management in Maintenance and New Techniques for Preparing an MTM Analysis

The role of time management for efficient workshop management will be the major focus at the 9th meeting of the Saxony MTM/IE Regional Group at the Halle workshops of DB Regio AG in the city on 26 September 2018. The keynote speech will be given by the MTM expert, Henry Röder, from DB Regio AG. Dr. Ricardo Schönherr, the Regional Group Leader and Head of Production Systems and E-Mobility Projects at VW Sachsen GmbH, will chair the meeting.

After the lecture, those attending will have an opportunity to inspect the workshops at DB Regio and gain an impression of the effects of good work system planning on the spot. DB Regio AG offers comprehensive services to all railroad corporations: emergency repairs, maintenance, refitting, optimization or cleaning – 365 days a year – either as a service on site, a mobile service or in the workshop, like here in Halle. By the way: It is absolutely essential to wear a warning vest during the guided tour (standard car equipment is sufficient), so please bring one with you!

As the number of participants is restricted, we would ask you to register by sending an email to by 31 August 2018.

The Westphalia regional group to meet at paragon GmbH
The 11th meeting of the Westphalia MTM/IE regional group will take place at paragon GmbH & Co. KGaA in Delbrück (Paderborn District in North Rhine-Westphalia) on 2 October 2018. paragon GmbH was founded as an electronics manufacturer in 1988. It then started working on automobile electronics and launched its IPO. Other milestones have involved the development of the electromobility division as well as its international expansion. paragon took over the air quality sensor business from Bosch in 2003 – and the corporation has been fully focusing on the production of electronics components and sensors for the automobile industry since 2010.

The group meeting will be chaired by Frank Keinhorst, Head of Industrial Engineering at paragon; he is still familiar to many, thanks to the time that he spent at Hella. Dr. Burkhard Leifhelm will give the corporate presentation; he is Head of the Mechanics and Production Department at paragon GmbH & Co. KGaA. Knuth Jasker, Executive Director of Deutsche MTM-Vereinigung e. V., will provide information about digitalizing process design with MTM. He will particularly introduce those attending to new techniques for preparing analyses and the new e-learning training format. There will be a feedback session after the tour of the factory, which will last about one hour.

Please register by sending an email to by 31 August 2018 at the very latest.
