The 2008 AviX® Seminar was a success!
One of several interesting presentations and discussions on day 1 was Professor Anders Kinnander talking on “Beyond Lean”. His speech was highly appreciated and gave rise to many interesting discussions.
Swedwood AB, a wholly-owned daughter company to IKEA, was represented by Mr Risto Päntikainen who made a detailed and highly valued report on how they, using AviX®, have run SMED projects with amazing results! On behalf of his company, Risto received, on day 2, this year’s AviX® Award of Excellence, Solme´s yearly challenge prize for a work where AviX® has been of vital importance for the result and which have attracted well-deserved attention.
In the evening all delegates went to Marstrand´s "Koön" by RIB boats. We enjoyed a marvellous feast being both a seminar party and a celebration of Solme´s first 10 years where tremendous fireworks formed a spectacular final to the event.
We wish to thank you all for joining us and for making the seminar a pure success!
