The right manufacturing strategy is vital to maintaining profitability and running an efficient business. Manufacturing, however, is a complex business, and it is often difficult to know where to start when reviewing and developing long term strategic plans. This industry guide explains in clear, simple stages how to review your current processes and procedures, and how to build on this information to develop, present and implement new manufacturing strategies. Based on a uniquely structured approach developed over many years with major industry clients, including Rolls-Royce and Federal Mogul, its holistic approach can be applied to every area of operations from the entire organization down to individual business units or processes. CD included.
