Innovation

TLSC-E actively strives for continuous improvement in all areas. Lean Six Sigma (LSS) concepts is used to improve the financial aspects and quality of products. The Idea Management Program at TLSC-E extends the possibilities for corporate development, with the primary goal of the generation of tangible savings.

To innovate, the prerequisite is an actual understanding of customer requirements, the strict use of facts and figures, and consistent improvement through redevelopment of processes, products, and services. We also believe that suggestions with intangible savings, but resulting in an considerable improvement of work processes or quality are underestimated factors of success. We believe in the expert knowledge of our employees. The good ideas of our workforce pave the way towards a successful future.
