Report on Experience

Production and Operations Management Module Week in Suzhou

The staff of KIT Branch China was warm welcoming the HECTOR School Master participants in Suzhou, China. After an introduction in the GAMI office located in the Suzhou Industrial Park, the participants headed to the historic center of Suzhou. This was the perfect place to get in contact with Chinese traditional culture. 

Lectures gave an impression of Quality Management and Supplier Management with a strong relation to China. The theoretical knowledge was accompanied by visits of different factories and companies in Suzhou and Shanghai. The first visit was at the office and production hall of MTU.
