We would like to introduce you to Stijn Totté, who works as a Process Improvement Consultant at Nobleo Manufacturing and teaches Operational Excellence at Fontys University of Applied Sciences. This combination brings together practical experience and theory.
At Fontys University of Applied Sciences, my work primarily focuses on teaching Operational Excellence to third-year students in the Industrial Engineering & Management specialization of the Industrial Engineering & Management program. Along with a fellow instructor, I am constantly working on improving the Operational Excellence course by introducing and implementing new work methodologies, literature, and best practices. All of this contributes to equipping students with the latest theories in the field of Operational Excellence.
Currently, my work at Nobleo Manufacturing involves multiple industrialization projects for clients in the Automotive and High-Tech industries. Within the project teams, we follow Nobleo’s Design & Deliver methodology. I will briefly highlight one project that I am executing at Lightyear.
The combination of primarily working in the business environment and part-time teaching enhances my knowledge of the subjects I teach to students. At the same time, it keeps me up to date with new work methodologies and literature within Operational Excellence. Every day, I grow personally and share the acquired knowledge, experience, and best practices.
