Implementing Quick Response Manufacturing to reduce lead times and increase profitability – Free Webinar

By implementing the Quick Response Manufacturing enterprise-wide strategies low-volume/high-mix and custom manufacturers have cut lead times in manufacturing and office operations to increase productivity. Reducing waiting time allows orders to flow more quickly, increasing on-time delivery and reducing the order-to-cash cycle. Companies can launch products more quickly and compete in rapidly changing markets. Profitability improves from reduced cost and defects. The proof of these strategies is in the results of WMEP client implementations.

QRM builds on the foundations of Lean and Six Sigma and focuses whole organizations on reducing time. It enables your company to be more competitive in manufacturing custom-engineered products in low or varying volumes with high quality and short lead times.

This 1 ½ hour session will show how focusing on time as a single measure of manufacturing system performance companies have reduced lead times from order-to-ship and increased productivity yielding significant performance results.
