Ever since production companies have been competing for the customers' favour and success only come to those who can offer the better product at the prices accepted by the market, there has been a desire to optimise performance processes. This was the start of REFA's work. The aim was to use human resources and all other available resources in such a way that the desired product could be produced from the raw material in the shortest possible time and at the lowest possible cost. REFA was founded over 90 years ago. The core methods developed into a whole repertoire for analysis, design and optimisation of company organisation. The implementation of these methods formed the basis for market success of countless companies.
What is the REFA Methodology?
The REFA Methodology includes the traditional core knowledge of REFA which is continuously updated. The core methods focus on optimising work processes as well as on the determination and evaluation of operational data. The individual methods can be used as separate tool but they also complement each other. When methods and tools according to the REFA Methodology are used, it is possible to look at work processes in a systematic and holistic approach so that the entire value added chain of an organisation can be analysed and optimised. Noteworthy of the REFA Methodology is its neutrality in tariff politics. Before a method is published, the content is checked by the Confederation of German Employers' Associations and the German Confedera-tion of Trade Unions.
