Site of the summit
The summit began with the introduction of the history and the modules of TWI by Mr. Xu, and it has given audiences a clear and big picture first. The interaction with audience warmed the atmosphere by 7 spectacular cases sharing from different enterprises.
Questions from the audience
Meanwhile, the comments from professional judges let us further recognize that the effective implementation of TWI within the enterprise can bring tangible benefits. Despite of difficulties in the beginning of the implementation, how to "continuous improvement" is also a common problem encountered in the journey of TWI implementation..
Comments from the judge
There are 7 cases of TWI for the TWI summit this time. The difference from the summit we held last time is that the judges also include our loyal customer besides the experts from JITA. The whole process is like a feast of knowledge--the process of thinking is also the learning process. Standing on the same level of a line, we could see the future of implementation of TWI in our country, and it is obvious to all that we will have a magnificent prospect.
The Winner of “The Best Promotion Prize of TWI” is Bosch Suzhou Company
The Winner of “The Best Improvement Prize of TWI” is China Tobacco Mauduit (Jiangmen) Paper Industry Co., Ltd.
The winners from two enterprises are excited at the moment up to the stage. What an unexpected pleasure! Here, on behalf of MESC staff, I just want to thank the support and recognition from all of customers. It could be the cornerstone to step into another level.
“The way ahead is long and has no ending……”
