In cooperation with the Technical University of Berlin, the Fraunhofer IPK and Bayer Pharma AG, ITCL has developed a learning factory for the process and pharmaceutical industry. The goal of this learning factory is the sustainable implementation of operational excellence by increasing the employee qualification.
The learning factory consists of a representative value creation process in the pharmaceutical industry, which allows an experience-oriented and practical training of operational staff as well as executives in a real-world production environment. The focus of the training measures is the interactive teaching of lean management skills through observation, theory and application in the lean factory. The training offer is not only available for employees of the Bayer Pharma AG, but also open to external companies. Specific requirements of these can be adapted.
A description of the research project can be found on the website of the Institute for Machine Tools and Factory Management of the TU Berlin.
