Why "European TPM3"?

The basic element of all "Japanese system" is continuous improvement. The same applies for European TPM3 as well. As spreading around the world, TPM has been modified through the various countries, influenced by various schools and consultants. European TPM3 is meant as the highly modified version of the original TPM thinking. From our experience it is extremely easy to implement this 'European TPM3' system, it is highly effective, and easy to maintain. Come and see how it works!
