In a practical academy organized by the INTEMAC center and the Effectivity company, try out how to make your production more efficient. You will gain know-how and an overview of how to optimize daily activities and routines in your company. Under the guidance of people with many years of experience, you will create a tailor-made digitization plan for you.

We will make sure that your costs (not only to the Academy itself) are returned to you. We are convinced that the implementation of the proposed optimization will cover the cost of this course twice a year.

How will the academy go?

We have prepared 8 one or two-days practical workshops for you. The meetings will take place in Moravia, you will be able to be inspired directly in the production companies of our partners.

At the beginning of the academy, you set your own optimization project for digitization and automation, which you will gradually solve. In the first block, we will focus on the Lean method and prepare the ground for digitization. You will try how to efficiently set up your production processes, logistics, supply or purchase of material. For example, we will show you how to efficiently collect data in production and how to interpret it correctly. We will advise you on how to find space for automation and digitization in your company. And last but not least, we will introduce you to the possibilities of financing your newly created projects.

Everything will end with a final exam - a presentation of your project. Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate under the heading of the first functional Digital Innovation Hub in the Czech Republic - DIH DIGIMAT.

You will have your own coach who will discuss the progress of your project with you on a regular basis (on-site and online). He will guide you through the entire Academy so that you do not wander unnecessarily.
