Event Details

The webinar will be conducted in Chinese.


With the market environment getting more competitive, cost reduction and efficiency improvement has become a major focus. In the manufacturing industry, cost reduction activities in the direct areas (production activities) are mature and clear-focused, such as quality improvement, lead time reduction, raw material cost reduction, etc. However, it is often difficult to start with in non-production areas (non-production). Many departments choose to participate by reducing office supplies, which not only has little effect but also adds inconvenience. In fact, cost reduction and efficiency improvement has huge potential in the non-production areas. If difficulties such as finding a starting point, quantifying the result, and lack of tools are removed, companies can easily achieve considerable benefits.

This information session will discuss the common barriers of cost reduction and efficiency improvement in the non-production areas, share the approach, methods, and successful experiences for this topic, and help companies expand the scope of cost reduction and efficiency improvement. Corporate leaders planning to carry out cost reduction and efficiency improvement activities in non-production areas are welcome to participate, including but not limited to department heads of R&D, quality, supply chain, sales support, procurement, finance, HR, admin, and the general managers.
