Tamtron has improved their communication and quality in deliveries. Ventisol has developed their communicating internally and externally. Laray has strengthened their understanding of how to work for more efficient production engineering. In the near future, more MEET workshops are planned with other IUC companies.

Planned approach and implementation

As planned, the project developed and implemented: (i) an introductory workshop with the project’s IUC companies; (ii) in-depth workshops at Tamtron and Ventisol for analysis of working methods and communication in the organization, and (iii) the MEET app for creating engagement, understanding and analysis. Subsequently, support was provided for continued analysis and improvement work at the companies. Results have been published and a simple survey of methods similar to MEET has been made.
