On 19 th of November 2015 AUSTREX staff were delighted by the opportunity to meet Dr. Temple Grandin in Jakarta during her Indonesian tour with MLA. Dr Grandin provided an invaluable experience for AUSTREX in-market staff to spend some time talking about working operationally in new destinations. Dr Grandin shared how her experiences in an established feedlot and abattoir sector could help to improve the AUSTREX approach to training, design and improvement when supporting a developing market.
AUSTREX has since started to adopt Dr Grandin's approach of developing scoring systems when making many types of operational evaluations. Systems like these are teachable, repeatable and objective. It is important to be able to accurately evaluate and re-evaluate operational scenarios for ongoing control and improvement in our supply chains.
A wonderful opportunity and great insight, thank you Dr Temple Grandin and MLA.
