Jean-François Ouellet Explains why Matra Chose Tervene
We met with Jean-François Ouellet, Manager of Continuous Improvement and Support to Operations. He explained to us why Produits Matra chose Tervene:
“Produits Matra is going through challenges very similar to most companies today. We are very serious in our intention to accomplish the mission of becoming the best possible partner.
To accomplish our goal, we firmly believe that we must adopt the best management practices and integrate new technologies. It was a very happy discovery for us when we met Tervene. The technology and the approach they are proposing perfectly supports our development approach based on the elimination of waste and a focus on value creation activities.
Their tools are based on a Daily Management System (DMS) and are key elements to control for our value creation process. Whether it is for the identification of issues, to target the right improvement opportunities, prioritize them, or manage improvement plans, everything is there! The prioritization of improvement opportunities is dynamic and directly associated with the improvement goals chosen by upper management.
We also appreciate the simple and quick implementation process supported by a team of highly professional and flexible consultants. For us it is now clear that Tervene is an essential tool for businesses aspiring to become part of tomorrow’s industry 4.0.”
