The importance of the Asia-Pacific region within the global economy is growing continuously. Growing wealth and urbanisation are driving consumption, hence opening up many business opportunities for companies. Are you producing in the Asia-Pacific region or maintain important supply chains here? Is your company active in the supplier industry of the ASEAN countries and serves other foreign markets? In that case international standards in operational organisation and process optimisation should be at the top of your agenda. As important as it is to respond to the country-specific needs, the consistent communication, terminology and methods within a company and across borders are just as crucial. Because only with standardisation and communication standards can you coordinate and align global value creation processes in order to achieve your company goals in the long term and score points in competition.
Certified REFA-Consultants – in our own locally based consultancy firms or selected cooperations – support you in the process with goal-oriented organisational, time management and production consultancy as well as lean management, both nationally and internationally.
REFA-Methods combined with LEAN: proven international standards
As promising as the Asia-Pacific region is for entrepreneurial action, it is as challenging with its complex structures and regulations. In addition, companies globally must manage the transition to Industry 4.0 if they want to survive in the market. However, before technical upgrades can be made, companies should make and design structures, procedures and processes transparent and according to requirements. In doing so, special attention should be given to their effectiveness and efficiency. Only then the technological turbo can show results. The REFA-Methods for process analysis and optimisation in terms of LEAN are your basis for succeeding. With the implemented standards synergies in work design and operational organisation can be achieved in the Asia-Pacific market. International companies like Siemens and Linde are already using the tried-and-tested REFA-Knowledge. Just as many automotive suppliers – like the Schaeffler Group – are using the proven consultancy and training services REFA International AG offers.
