To progress in Continuous Improvement implementation, such as for any journey, you need to know your current position, define your destination, and finally build your roadmap.


For any organization (factory, office....), the OPEX Assessment answers to these needs and will be your GPS towards Operational Excellence.


In order to support organizations in their journey towards Operational Excellence, you must be familiar with the content of this reference and develop your ability to use it.


Additionally, by developing your assessor skill (QAD), you can become an OPEX Assessor.
