“Learn from the best!” – that’s the motto of the Automotive Lean Production Awards, presented every year by the trade journal Automobilproduktion in cooperation with Agamus Consult, a subsidiary of the ConMoto Consultung Group. Prizes are awarded to the best performers in the five categories “International SME”, “International Group”, “OEM”, “Excellent Overall System” and “Best Value Creation Chain”. The winners of the prestigious prize are the victors from a field of businesses that have adopted the European benchmark in lean production.
