Upgrading Belarusian automotive industry, Phase II

Upgrading Belarusian automotive industry, Phase II

The project, executed by UNIDO with financial support from the Russian Federation in the amount of USD 450,000, was launched in March 2018. Its activities are focused on practical shop-floor interventions in pilot companies as well as awareness-raising events for the whole industrial sector, including on issues related to Industry 4.0.

During shop-floor interventions, national project experts trained within the first project phase capacitated in-company employees on the basics of the lean manufacturing. The national project experts then jointly selected and upgraded pilot zones using lean instruments. Such practical trainings are valued by the beneficiary companies as they contribute significantly to cost savings and inspire company specialists to make further improvements. One example of success, based on feedback from a project pilot company, is the project intervention resulted in an annual savings of BYN 1,186,000 (appr. USD 600,000).
