QRM awareness Day - Lead time reduction as a game changer

Customers want their orders delivered faster and faster, demand more customization and smaller orders. Not the size of a company, but the speed of a company is increasingly becoming the most important factor. Do you sometimes dream of the huge benefits that a short lead time and flexible production could bring to your business?

Quick Response Manufacturing offers an answer to this. It is a growth strategy that makes organizations faster, more efficient and more flexible in a rapidly changing market.

By focusing on shortening the lead time, QRM has an impact on many other important success factors within the organization such as quality, cost, stock levels and especially satisfied employees!

To give you an insight into what Quick Response Manufacturing can mean for you, Moore , 3rd Wave and KU Leuven are organizing a QRM introductory day on Monday 27 May 2019. We introduce you to the QRM principles that contribute to unexpectedly strict lead time reduction, we let you experience the implementation and operation of QRM in a QRM game and we give you an example of how you can support QRM with the appropriate software and link it to your current business software.

Don't miss this opportunity. To make the game meaningful for everyone, the number of registrations is limited to 20 people. Fast registration is therefore the message.
