What are the Better Factory's KTEs?

The Knowledge Transfer Experiments (KTEs) aim at transforming the Manufacturing SMEs and Mid-Caps into optimum Lean-Agile factories with manufacturing and delivery of new and/or personalized products and services as their business strategy.

In each KTE, an Artist is supporting the SME in the development of new and personalized products and services, while a Technology Supplier is managing the installation of the APPS and additional services developed by them.
