"We have left no stone unturned," said Schleef in an interview.
"The basic premise for Nueva Seat is our new collective bargaining agreement," said Schleef.
After long negotiations, Seat has reached an agreement with its unions that offers the automaker considerably more flexibility through a new working-hours model. At a recent manager conference, Seat's management team committed itself to concentrating on making processes more efficient.
A 500-day plan, which started June 20, was also adopted.
As a first step, managers have until the end of August to present plans for their respective areas, showing where the potential for optimization is and how it can be developed.
Schleef is moving Seat's administrative headquarters from Barcelona to a new seven-story building on the grounds of the Martorell factory.
The building will open May 2006. It will house 600 employees.
Seat is part of Volkswagen group's Audi division.
