EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation organizes on June 26-30, 2017, "World Class Manufacturing" Training Course and Company Mission in Tokyo, Japan. 

The 5-day World Class Manufacturing training mission provides an in-depth analysis of Japanese manufacturing methodology and is aimed exclusively at EU managers with knowledge of WCM and an engineering background. It assists the participants to acquire a better understanding of TQC (Total Quality Control), TQM (Total Quality Management), TPM (Total Productive Maintenance), JIT (Just In Time), TIE (Total Industrial Engineering) practices and the current KAIZEN manufacturing methods.

You will participate in lectures, seminars and panel discussions presented by industry experts covering topics Japanese, followed by visits to Japanese companies in following sectors: chemicals and plastic materials, machinery, steel, automobile industry.

Why participate?

  • Discover the Japanese approach towards World-Class Manufacturing
  • Learn how Japanese firms achieve superior production standards
  • Focus on the latest trends by visiting the top manufacturing plants in Japan
  • Visit the real "GEMBA" (i.e. production site in Japan)

Ideal participants work as Director, Manager, Operation & Logistics, Plant Manager, Quality Manager or Managing Director. The sector of activity is unimportant since the themes covered are equally applicable in non-manufacturing industries.

The participants' companies must cover travel costs to/from Japan, accommodation and any other costs not covered directly by the EU-Japan Centre (living expenses).
