Learn how to take serious time of your operations to reduce waste and lead time while growing market share to become more profitable. 

This workshop focuses on Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM), a proven strategy that is being used around the world by businesses in all industries, even services that need to reduce their Total Lead Time to process orders and meet customer requirements. QRM is an alternative strategy to concepts developed for high volume production such as lean.
