The Asia-Pacific region has grown enormously in terms of global economic weight in recent decades and is, by international standards, a highly dynamic region. Especially China has become a regional hub and a global player. Growing wealth and urbanisation are driving consumption, hence opening up many business opportunities for companies.
Are you doing business in the Asia-Pacific region or maintaining important supply chains in this region? Is your company active in the supplier industry of the ASEAN countries and is serving other foreign markets? In that case, international standards in operational organisation and process optimisation should be at the top of your agenda. While it is important to address country-specific concerns, a consistent communication, terminology and approach across borders in your organisation are also key to the international success of your business. Because only with standardisation and communication standards you can coordinate and align global value creation processes in order to achieve your company goals in the long term.
For this purpose, locally based REFA consultants or selected cooperation partners with practice-proven consultancy in organisation, time management and production as well as Lean Management are at your service.
International standards for successful activities in the ASEAN countries
Despite its complex structures and regulations, the Asia-Pacific region offers enormous potential for entrepreneurial activity. Also, Industry 4.0 will have a significant impact on the ASEAN countries. The path to this goal will not be even, as ASEAN is not a homogeneous community of states, but an association of Southeast Asian countries in completely different stages of development. However, what they have in common is that the companies located there must ensure that their structures, sequences and processes are transparent within the company and designed to meet requirements before they can carry out technical upgrades. International standards will help you create the basis for this approach. The established REFA methods for process analysis and optimisation according to Lean Management principles provide you with the support you need. Benefit from valuable synergies in work design and business organisation in the Asia-Pacific region, just as renowned companies such as Siemens, Linde or the Schaeffler Group are already doing.
