 Directions

Increased product variety and customer expectations for fast response are challenges that many manufacturers face. Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) is an enterprise wide management strategy that helps businesses improve competitiveness by focusing on reducing lead times, which leads to less waste, reduced costs, and higher quality.  QRM is applicable to the shop floor and to office operations. This webinar will highlight the hidden costs associated with long lead times and introduce how QRM tools and methods can be used to shorten lead times and eliminate these costs across the organization.
