Duration: 18 months

Aim of the project

The aim of the project was to support company-wide continuous improvement (CI) in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). More specifically, to provide a practical software system (with embedded methodology) to support company-wide application, co-ordination, monitoring and measurement of improvement activities in SMEs. Using this software system, the project aims to improve the major business performance indicators (cost, product quality, delivery reliability, speed) in the participating SMEs by at least 10 % in the first six months of the implementation of the CIntranet results.

A related objective was to encourage a continuous improvement culture in smaller companies by providing the assistance they need for a self-help approach to CI. An indirect benefit will also be the support for the improvement of the competencies of the SME personnel.
