The application of lean principles to flexible working

4 November 2013

BMW Plant Regensburg - Germany

2013 EFQM Prize Winner in "Managing with Agility" and "Sustaining Outstanding Results"

Plant Regensburg is clearly committed to continuous improvement, the application of lean principles and innovative approaches to flexible working. This has resulted in Plant Regensburg achieving a high level of production flexibility (one of the three strategic drivers) without entailing excessive costs. Production flexibility is of great value to BMW, as it seeks to offer more car variants with less cost and less lead time in an increasingly changeable marketplace.
