candidus Workshop
candidus holds workshops at the Strategy Conference for Industry at Bensberg Castle

On September 16/17, the Strategy Conference for industry brought to you by businessfactors GmbH at the Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg. Our managing director, Stefan Treiber, and our senior manager, Roland Rech, were holding a workshop within the scope of the program on September 16. The topic of the workshop was “Realignment of a production site – OPEX using a leading cable manufacturer as an example (case study)”. The goal of the event was to show the participants of the strategy conference how to carry out a successful OPEX project – with measures that are especially aligned with customer needs – being able to make an exemplary production site out of a production site with cost and production issues. In concrete terms, the participants were presented the following agenda:

  • Initial situation and goals of a leading cable manufacturer
  • Procedures for realignment of the production site (OPEX approach)
  • Results of the realignment
  • Success factors and lessons learned
  • Discussion and exchange of experience (15 min.)

Stefan Treiber and Roland Rech had an exciting time with interesting conversation and new contacts. They were also pleased to see the excellent rating of the workshop. With a grade of 1.7 the workshop was rated second best at the Strategy Conference.

On this day, we would like to invite all those interested to participate in a series of interesting lectures with high-ranking managers from leading companies in the industry in addition to workshops on current topics related to activities within the industry.

The candidus RAIL days will focus on the railway sector. After the year of the boom in 2011, more and more pressure regarding costs and performance is paramount in order to stay competitive in the industry over the long term.
