Explanation: Best Practices

In an industrial context, "best practices" refer to established methods, techniques, procedures or processes that have proven to be particularly effective, efficient and reliable in achieving specific goals. Best practices are often identified and (further) developed through repeated experience, research or experimentation.

Industrial companies apply best practices in numerous fields such as production, quality assurance, occupational safety, supply chain management, R&D and environmental protection. They help to improve employee performance, minimize risks, reduce costs and thus increase the company's competitiveness.
