Lean Supply Chain Management

Training for specialists

Ideal supplier performance by applying lean supply chain management

Effective and cooperative integration of suppliers

When companies optimise processes and processing steps, it is crucial that all areas along the value stream are included in the pursuit of top performance. Purchasing makes a significant contribution towards a company’s corporate success, with a view over the entire supply chain. One of the keystones of this is efficient and reliable supplier management, which is coordinated with the value stream by the use of suitable purchasing methods and activities. Turn your supplier management into a pillar of your 'lean company'.
