What is REFA?

Founded in 1924, REFA has been firmly established in nearly every German company and now many international companies as THE tool to measure process details.

REFA can make every process transparent.

If a process is transparent, it can be improved easily.

If it can be improved easily, it can be digitalized easily.

Thus REFA is the building block of Industry 4.0.
