8. Lean Spring Summit

The Eighth Lean Spring Summit is a place to be for all individuals and companies that are interested or want to know more about topics such as Smart Factory, Lean Management, optimization of processes and business, Digital Transformation, Industry 4.0 and Digital Technologies, Green business and green technologies and new jobs with new knowledge in the field of Digital and Green technologies.


In the Digital Decade of the EU, which we entered two years ago, we are facing two challenges, or better said, opportunities - Digital and Green Transformation, which go hand in hand and cannot be successfully implemented without each other. They are also equally important for the future of Europe.

EU industry is building a competitive advantage on sustainable growth, and the Croatian industry is still awaiting development in this direction, with the necessary assistance of European funds under the National Recovery and Resilience Plan, which provides funds to drive Digital and Green transformation. It is very important that every company, regardless of industry sector, location or size, gets the chance to take advantage of the opportunities arising from digital innovation within Industry 4.0.

8. Lean Spring Summit

Can the Industry care about the environment? Not only can it, but it must. As a part of the European Green Plan, EU members have committed themselves to reduce emissions by at least 55% by 2030 compared to 1990 levels. To achieve this goal, everyone will have to participate, both the state apparatus and the economy, and the population. It is important to keep in mind that it will be better for everyone if we achieve this goal.


Transformation also applies to new business models, methods of work, collaboration and communication, and altogether it requires new employee skills at all levels. In line with all beforementioned, jobs and the work environment in industrial and other businesses are expected to revolutionize.


One of the most important prerequisites for the implementation of the Digital and Green transformation of the company is the application of Lean Management, which will identify and eliminate losses in production and business processes, improve Key Performance Indicators and improve the mindset of employees at all levels.


At the Lean Spring Summit 2022 conference, experts and scientists will present specific solutions and methodologies with which you can optimize your business activities with the use of modern technologies, reduce costs and eliminate production losses, taking into account environmental care and climate change mitigation.



  • Optimization of production processes using IoT systems and artificial intelligence,
  • The introduction of smart tools for production planning and management,
  • Smart digital assistants,
  • Robotization and Automation of production bottlenecks,
  • The introduction of predictive maintenance,
  • Paperless production,
  • Vertical and Horizontal integration,
  • ERP systems 4.0,
  • Smart materials,
  • Optimization of the use of resources,
  • Renewable energy sources and recycling and reuse of by-products and production waste.
  • We will also show how to deal with change, enable employees to adapt, and prepare the company for transformation. Culmena’s Culis methodology is an easy and fast way to the successful implementation of Digital and Green, but also Lean transformation of any industrial company, small, medium, or large.
  • A Smart Factory has been set up at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture, University of Zagreb, and the first experiences of its application, as well as work models, will be presented at the conference.
  • Also, Culmena's Lean Academy, the program and results achieved by Lean Managers of the first generation of students will be presented.

See you in Opatija!
