A successful industrial activity entails rationalising and optimising the unitary steps in production. The rise in the new ways of designing a company (“supply chain”, process network) and the role of people (enriching tasks, autonomous teams) provide industrial management with a new priority.
Through their professions, the technologists at the Actia Centres adapt the tools for industrial performance to food companies, disseminate them and encourage their use through training and services for companies.
2004 Actia Publication: “Industrial performance - A practical guide for the food industry”.
This guide presents useful tools and methods for positioning companies in a competitive way, while still placing the employees at the core of the action. These tools are called for example Kaizen, Hoshin, 5 S or TPM and make it possible to revamp the way the work is organised in order to move towards improving productivity.
A revised and updated edition is underway in order to incorporate the various developments in the tools.
