Participants in the conference include decision makers from companies in the food, manufacturing, retail and service sector industries, who are looking for ways to reduce losses and increase efficiency in their entire production process. At the conference, a range of professionals will give presentations in which they share their vision and experience on how to utilise Lean Management technology in small to medium size companies, and will examine the role the technology can play in optimising productivity at all levels in a company.
SATO will also be participating in the conference by giving a presentation in which Oriol Navarro, Presales
