HARTING Wins Manufacturing Excellence Award

HARTING Electronics GmbH & Co. KG has won the Manufacturing Excellence (MX) Award for its highly effective deployment of state-of-the-art IT structures in production and supply chain management. An intelligent customer relationship management (CRM) system and a universal enterprise resource planning (ERP) system are used to ensure optimal customer care, process transparency and the direct integration of support systems in production. The award also took account of the modern internal communications structures deployed for knowledge management.

“This award provides us with confirmation that we are on the right track in our pursuit of excellence. Winning the MX Award proves that we also occupy a pioneering role in the field of information technology,” said Torsten Ratzmann, senior vice president production and logistics at HARTING. HARTING launched an internationally standardized IT system 10 years ago, which ensures optimal error avoidance and process optimization worldwide. The HARTING learning and improvement system (HARlis) — a management system deployed to establish a problem-solving culture — was developed to implement the concept of a learning and integral company. The emphasis is placed on the employees, while state-of-the-art IT structures support them in creating the transparency required.

The MX Award has recognized best-practice companies in production since 2005 under the maxim “identifying strengths — setting standards.” The objective is to recognize and promote innovative solutions and to make them universally available. The establishment of a network where best practice companies can present their solutions to other members therefore plays a key role.
