After 2 years of online renditions due to Covid, WCM is finally back to physical missions to Japan!

This 5-day mission gives senior European engineers and managers the perfect opportunity to visit some of the world’s most advanced factories to see for themselves how leading Japanese companies use world-class manufacturing techniques to talk directly with senior Japanese production engineering managers, and to observe how manufacturing methods are implemented in the GEMBA.
For companies from EU Member States and SMP-COSME partnering countries, the WCM training mission is aimed exclusively at managers and executives responsible for corporate-level, plant-level or production line-level continuous improvement strategies, who have an engineering background.
