MTM – Work design productive and safe

VPS Coach Days 2016: Specialists and managers from the Vaillant Group visit MTM in Hamburg

The Vaillant Group, one of the world’s market and technology leaders in the fields of heating, ventilation and air conditioning technologies, visited the German MTM company at its Hamburg base for its VPS Coach Days 2016 at the end of November. Specialists and managers from the central department and the Vaillant Group factories in Bozüyük, Nantes, Remscheid, Roding, Skalcia, Trencin and Wuxi took part in the workshop focusing on the Vaillant Group Production System (VPS). MTM Executive Director Knuth Jasker welcomed the participants personally to the two-day meeting held in the building on Elbchaussee. He gave a brief introduction to the MTM method and provided some information on the organization and its global activities – and current developments in the fields of consultancy work, training and software. He also invited his guests to use the MTM newsletter in English in order to be fully up-to-date about issues related to work system design and industrial engineering at all times.

It was no accident that the VPS Coach Days 2016 were held at the MTM site. Four years after the start of the first pilot project, the introduction of MTM at the Vaillant Group has almost been completed. The MTM method has been rolled out through further pilot projects at the factory sites in Germany, France, England, Slovakia, China and Turkey, both nationally and internationally, this year. During the next few years, the Vaillant Group is planning to use MTM in its indirect departments and consistently anchor the method in its production creation process too.
