The IWEX Institute bundles the know-how of the co-operation partners from science and economy to pass it on in trainings and coaching. Objective is to extend expertise for the sustainable optimization of value adding processes in companies and thereby to secure their competitiveness. For this purpose the Institute offers an extra-occupational training program "Lean Management" on the campus of the Ruhr University Bochum.

In the IWEX Learning Factory the participants of the trainings can apply the learned methods at once. On the basis of a consistent practical example with a concrete product, that is produced in the Learning Factory, they experience the effects of Lean principles and recognize starting points and questions for their own work environment.
