Manufacturing Excellence ran two stands at Oktoberfest this year. Outside we ran a "pitstop challenge" where participants were timed changing a wheel on a Formula 4 racing car. Several manufacturing companies had a go at changing the wheel, wearing full PPE, including ear defenders. Using different improvement techniques visitors saw how they could improve the pit stop time and relate this changeovers in their own workplace.
PLEASE NOTE: we are happy to run this as a training session to demonstrate Business Improvement Techniques at any of our clients or potential clients. All we need is enough space to put up the Manufacturing Excellence tent!
Inside, to tie in with the racing car theme we ran a variation of the retro sweets stall. Not surprisingly, this proved to be extremely popular as well.
