The MTM community meets!

At MTM SUMMIT 2022 – International Human Work Forum, everything revolves around the design of human work, standardized procedures and innovative digital solutions. No matter what turbulence companies are exposed to these days, nobody can avoid more efficiency in product and process as well as ergonomically designed workplaces as a cost factor. This time we focused on the topic of "Lean Work" in the program of lectures and also in the accompanying exhibition.

The event is again planned as a hybrid event - in the Hotel Gastwerk in Hamburg and via live stream on In order to make it easier for as many interested parties as possible to access information and exchange experiences nationally and internationally, the online ticket is free of charge this year.

We will also be offering a simultaneous German/English translation on both days.

We look forward to seeing you at the MTM SUMMIT on October 19th and 20th, 2022!

*If there are again restrictions on holding the on-site events in autumn, the relevant provisions of the location in Hamburg will apply. Please note the cancellation conditions for your individual travel booking.

Lean was yesterday, what is the future of work design? I rely on adaptive work systems as an answer to this question!

Harald Bauer
Team Lead Visual Computing @Profactor GmbH

Camera technology and AI-based software help to more efficiently analyze human movements in space and time and to recognize relevant actions, and thus more efficient MTM / ergonomics or general workplace analysis.

Prof. Dr. Peter Kuhlang

MTM and Lean are a dream team when it comes to calculating potential improvements in the work system well in advance.

Ralf Volkmer
Networker @Lean Knowledge Base

Unfortunately, there is still a widespread opinion that lean transformations can be planned and controlled like a software update. Organizations are socio-technical systems whose elements cannot be predicted and certainly cannot be mapped in methods.

Herwig Weidle
Division Director of Software Development @Deutsche MTM-Gesellschaft mbH

The new MTM cloud products TiCon for Web and MTMmotion® – approved by MTM ASSOCIATION pave the way for the future of MTM applications.

Florian Walter
Industrial Engineering @Siemens AG

Automatic generation of MTM-HWD® analyses with information from the digital twin reduce the effort involved in production planning.

Johann Exenberger
Consultant work and time study @STIHL Tirol GmbH

We are the first company in the world to receive the “approved by MTM ASSOCIATION” seal of approval.

Monika Herbstrith-Lappe
Founder & Managing Partner @Impuls & Wirkung – Herbstrith Management Consulting GmbH

Our world of upheavals urgently needs more confidence. How does our brain react to uncertainty? How can we still control our emotions? What does it take to move us & other people towards a joyful future?

Jens Rauschenbach
Head of Standards / Methods of Value Added Production System and Industrial Engineering @BMW AG

A standardized application of the MTM method for the evaluation of all processes in all technologies is the necessary prerequisite for efficient and consistent personnel requirements planning.

Dr. Johannes Pohl
Managing Partner @PEOPEX GmbH

Where does the company stand in terms of lean, what potential for improvement and low hanging fruits are there and how do they affect the income statement? In the area of assembly, MTM-Easy® can help to get reliable figures quickly and efficiently.

Dr. Andreas Argubi-Wollesen
Head of Biomechanics @exoIQ GmbH

High levels of physical stress in the workplace are the main driver for the development of musculoskeletal disorders among employees. Active exoskeletons, with their extensive customization options to individual resources and work-specific environmental factors, are a modern and promising approach to improving workplace ergonomics and reducing stress.

Michael Mohren
Michael Mohren
Process planning manager @DEHN SE

Shorter product cycles demand faster and more flexible planning processes for manual and automated work systems. This is why DEHN SE combines value stream design with virtual reality (VR) and MTM methods.

Stephan Meyer
Business Analyst / Requirement Engineer @Deutsche MTM-Gesellschaft mbH

Automatic generation of MTM-HWD analyses with information from the digital twin reduces production planning workload.
