Why you should participate in the Global Ideation Jam

Digital technologies and solutions are gaining ground at a very high speed in production and supply chain processes within all industries. At MANN+HUMMEL, we are continuously striving to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our manufacturing and supply chain processes.

Yet, the pace of digitalization is gaining more speed and new solutions are provided from suppliers in very short development cycles. Thus, we have to constantly check our opportunities, external offerings and competitive situation. It is our goal to stay ahead with our state-of-the-art technologies!

We, therefore, are setting up this Global Ideation Jam to identify the most successful strategies together to improve our manufacturing performance with the help of digital solutions new to MANN+HUMMEL. We are looking for an answer to the following key question:

How can we drive our SQDC performance with digitalization?

In order to answer this question, we ask you to think about the following:

  • Where do you see potentials in our manufacturing processes, where digital tools or solutions could bring us a big step forward?
  • Which performance improvement solutions would you propose or have you identified in the market, which are offered from suppliers or startup companies, used in other industries or implemented by competitors?

Please formulate your thoughts, findings and proposals and share your ideas, projects and best practices in the upcoming Global Ideation Jam. The MANN+HUMMEL Global Ideation Jam is no idea competition, instead we want to motivate employees to exchange with colleagues from around the globe. This will help us identifying concrete IIoT use cases and projects to improve our SQDC performance!
