Lean Foundations for Manufacturing Lunch and Learn | July 24

Small and medium-sized manufacturers have an especially difficult time competing in the global marketplace. Lean manufacturing has emerged as a successful way for manufacturers to focus on the customer and increase competitiveness and customer satisfaction.  Lean Manufacturing removes and/or minimizes non-value work activity from the manufacturing process.  The results are a more efficient and effective business, improving bottom line and ultimately increasing profitability.
