Due to its size and resources the Arab region holds great potential for internationally operating companies. The liberal trade policies and well-trained professionals also speak in favour of this economic region. The strong orientation towards Europe and booming markets offer a lot of opportunities.
Are you producing in the Arab region or maintain important supply chains here? Is your company active in the MENA region countries and serves other foreign markets? In that case international standards in operational organisation and process optimisation are of vital importance to your company. Of course, as an internationally operating company you have to take country-specific circumstances into account, but you should also pay close attention to consistent communication, terminology and methodical procedures within your company - worldwide. Only then you will be able to align and coordinate global value creation processes to achieve your company´s goals and stay competitive in the long term.
Certified REFA-Consultants – in our own locally based consultancy firms or selected cooperations – support you in the process with purposeful organisational, time management and production consultancy as well as Lean Management, both nationally and internationally.
REFA-Methods in combination with LEAN: proven international standards
The Arab region holds exciting potential for industrialisation which however has not yet been tapped into to the necessary extend in all MENA region countries. When it comes to digitisation and networking of manufacturing processes (Industry 4.0) the United Arab Emirates are way ahead of other neighbouring countries and want to set standards in the Arab region. However, before companies can upgrade technically, they have to make structures, procedures and processes in the company transparent, design them according to requirements and optimise them regarding effectiveness and efficiency. Only then can the technological turbo boost performance.
The basis for this is created with the internationally proven REFA-Methods for process analysis and optimisation in terms of lean management. The implemented standards enable you as a company to create valuable synergies in work design and operational organisation in the Arab region. Large industrial companies such as Siemens, Linde or Schaeffler already rely on the tried-and-tested REFA-Knowledge. Many automotive suppliers - such as Schaeffler and the Dräxlmaier Group - also make effective use of the proven consultancy and training services REFA International AG offers.

Effective further vocational training – in-house or online
If optimisation processes are meant to be accelerated, standards for terminology and procedures help enormously, as they ensure that everyone involved in the value stream of a company speaks a “uniform” language worldwide and work with the same tools and methods towards the company’s goals.
The purposeful training of your employees across national borders supports this project. REFA International offers you a tried-and-tested program of further vocational training courses when it comes to effective methods for time management, processes and lean management – at home and many other countries around the world.
