The MX Award was initiated with the aim of identifying and promoting innovative solutions in the field of production and logistics and making them accessible to the general public. In accordance with this claim, the aim is to establish a network for communicating and shaping best practices as well as for promoting cross-sectoral international cooperation. The phase model of the MX Award "Identify strengths - Generate innovations - Set standards - Communicate best practices" clarifies this claim as a communication platform as well as a generator of innovations in science and practice.
Objectives and aspiration
The primary objective of the Manufacturing Excellence concept is to promote cross-industry cooperation to create a network for communication for experts from science and practice. Innovative and creative solutions should not only strengthen international competitiveness in the long term, but also Germany as a business location, particularly through holistic interaction.
Origin and basis
The guiding principle of the Manufacturing Excellence Award is: "Identify strengths - set standards". Thus, the MX Award was founded in Germany in 2004 - modelled on the successful MX Award in Great Britain. For almost 30 years, best practice solutions have been honoured there and companies have received awards. The MX Award in Germany is the established counterpart and a respected benchmarking competition for best practices in the industry.
