Lean Manufacturing

Lean manufacturing is a great way to improve your company’s efficiency and profitability while keeping your customers happy.  It’s an important part of business nowadays and it’s a tool that most companies choose to use to avoid moving operations to other countries where labor is much less expensive.  What is interesting is how many companies have found that by improving their manufacturing processes, the effect that the labor variance has on their profitability drops dramatically!  This is in part due to the lower cost of shipping/defect resolution of foreign plants, and companies need to leverage that!
