The Women of Today’s Manufacturing (WOTM) is hosting a workshop on Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM): "It’s About Time! Increasing Your Manufacturing Competitive Advantage."
Professor Rajan Suri, Founding Director of the Center for Quick Response Manufacturing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will present the workshop at Cliffbreakers Riverside in Rockford. Professor Suri is the author of four books on QRM. He is an internationally acclaimed speaker and has received several awards for the development and implementation of QRM strategy in the U.S. industry.
QRM is a companywide strategy for lead time reduction throughout the enterprise. Its focus on lead time can reduce both response times and costs and give companies a competitive edge in global markets.
QRM involves a new way of thinking about manufacturing. In particular, it requires a huge management paradigm shift from cost-based to time-based decision-making.
Implementing QRM requires a huge management mindset shift from cost-based to time-based decisions.
