Chris Pienaar"I would like to commend Gerhard on a excellent course" Chris Pienaar, OSIsoft
Konstantin Chizhov 

"Participated remotely via Skype, because the classroom was a bit overcrowded. However I was literally glued to the monitor and to the headphones - Jan delivered all course materials so clearly and with that passion. I wish I could take part in the training in person, I think I could learn more from that." Konstantine Chizhov, Senior Project Manager, Honeywell, Russia
Salah Khouatra

"An Inspirer. An Empower. An Engager. These three characteristics are just a short sample of the many you demonstrate with all of your students, including me, every single day. I want to express our gratitude and authentic value for the support you so eagerly share for our knowledge, as not only students, but also as Managers and decision makers."

Ioan Batran, Director Automation Engineering, Coca-Cola Refreshments, USA


"The CoC course is for those shaping the direction of manufacturing information systems. Overall, this was a good use of 4 days of my life (my basic benchmark for training).  Our instructor was knowledgeable and presented the material well. I think the course title should be changed to something like 'MES/MOM Transformation Leadership' - it would be more descriptive of what's actually taught."

Patrick Weber, Sr. Systems Consultant MBA, PMP, Energizer, USA

"Overall Excellent.  Instructor's 25 years of experience in MES standards leads to great discussions.The MESA GEP Program is the first consolidation of MES approaches and really clears up things I have been trying to bring together for 10 years.

GEP Delegate, Australia


"I went to the MESA course looking for information that will help me understand the scope of the ERP system in our re-implementation project. Also I went to clarify where an automated MES system will fit in the future.  I have to say that I came back from this course with a better understanding of what we should do in our ERP and what not. After the course I was able to prepare a clearer scope for our ERP and the roadmap considering an automated MES as part of our journey."

Elisa Hernandez, IT Project Coordinator, Cervecera de Puerto Rico
