PROPOS software finds its origin in everyday practice. It has been developed BOSCH Hinges (The Netherlands). Bosch Hinges is a worldwide frontrunner in the field of process improvement with Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) and Lean Manufacturing. PROPOS software has been developed to support this successful QRM and Lean implementation.
From the enthusiasm of companies that came to look at the QRM implementation and the software at BOSCH Hinges, the idea arose to also offer other companies the success of PROPOS software. Our connection to everyday practice on shop floors is and remains of great importance to us.
We always test new developments in our software against the theory of QRM and Lean, but certainly also against the practice of daily practices in the production company where PROPOS originated. Because of our history and our in-depth but broad knowledge, we can offer more than just software. During the implementation of PROPOS, we can – if you wish – also introduce or improve QRM and Lean principles in your company. These principles will make the implementation of PROPOS extra powerful and further increase the benefits for your company.
Our network comprises a large number of companies and institutions that are all enthusiastic about improving their processes through QRM and Lean Manufacturing. Through us, all this knowledge and experience is also available to you.
PROPOS is closely involved with the Dutch QRM Center (BOSCH Hinges and Metal is one of its founders), we have good contacts with experts at the University of Arnhem and Nijmegen (HAN), the University of Groningen (RUG), technology institute Sirris in Belgium and many other colleges and universities in the Netherlands and abroad. In addition, we maintain good personal contacts with Prof. Rajan Suri, the founder of QRM.
When you work with PROPOS, you choose a reliable partner who understands what is going on with you and what is important to you. Our extensive theoretical knowledge and practical experience guarantee good advice and a successful implementation of PROPOS in practice at your company. Always with the goal to increase the long-term profitability and continuity of your company.
Due to our extensive practical experience, we quickly understand your problems. With you, we can link these together to practical solutions. These solutions can be part of our software, but also in the application of a number of QRM or Lean Manufacturing principles. The software then guarantees and reinforces the implemented improvements.
The PROPOS team is always there for you, from the preparatory phase to successful implementation and beyond. Meet our team:
