"The decision to propose a trade show in Lausanne underlines the strong position of the French speaking part of Switzerland in the sectors of chemistry, biotechnology and laboratory in general. This community can benefit from this opportunity to get informed about the novelties on the market and to cultivate an intensive networking just in front of the doors of EPFL."

Operational Excellence is an element of organizational leadership and organizational intelligence that focuses on meeting customer expectation, all while stressing the application of a variety of principles, systems, and tools toward the sustainable improvement of key performance metrics. It is based on data driven metrics that are derived from either algorithm, machine learning or artificial intelligence. As simple as it sounds, as cloudy is its implementation in our daily life. When asked exactly what it is, there is always hesitation. Answers such as "It's about process quality (making perfect parts every time)," or "Applying lean tools everywhere to eliminate waste" are common. It is not an easy concept to quantify, and very difficult to explain in simple practical terms to an operator on the production floor, so they know what to do to create and sustain it.

We hope to see you in Lausanne in early October.
