Lean in Europe: Driving Competitiveness visit to Lego Systems AS

2-day visit to Lego Systems A/S, Billund (DK)

On 14 & 15 November 2013, 25 engineers from 11 EU Member-States attended the first visit, to LEGO Systems A/S in Billund, Denmark, under the EU-Japan Centre's new Lean in Europe - Driving Competitiveness initiative.

Following a preparatory lecture from Prof. Richard Keegan of Enterprise Ireland, the participants visited first LEGO's Prototyping & Mould Manufacturing plant and then its Moulding plant to learn about LEGO Continuous Improvement and particularly how LEGO uses 5s principles, visual shop-floor management and practical problem solving.

The goal of the Centre's new activity is to inspire and help participants adopt best practice techniques by seeing them in action in leading European factories.
