Lean Production Philosophy
The aviation industry is continually subject to fluctuations – from day to day and over the course of a year. These fluctuations pose major practical challenges for managing airports. Changes also have to be made in anticipation of future challenges: corporate strategies have to be adjusted, and processes need to be continually monitored, analyzed, and redesigned for greater effectiveness and efficiency. We are used to anticipating and confronting future developments. And we have learned that, now more than ever, we can achieve more by implementing lean processes.
“Lean Production” at Fraport Ground Services – a Complete New Way of Thinking
By thinking lean, we deliver value without wasting anything. We coordinate our value-adding activities and make efficient use of our resources and time, eliminating everything that is superfluous. Our goal is to continually improve our capabilities and services. In order to establish a stable basis for accommodating future changes, we strive to optimally anchor our business processes, equipment and infrastructure, as well as the mindset and abilities of our employees.
We can only realign our processes by extensively involving all of our customers and staff. We are committed to continually increasing the effectiveness, efficiency, and quality of our services. This optimally prepares us to meet future challenges.
