The Purpose of the Guide

The Manufacturing Management and Technology Guide is the result of many years consulting and operations experience.

It is presented in an easy-to-read summary of processes, tools and techniques to assist engineers and engineering managers to participate in, and contribute to forming and executing a manufacturing company's strategies.
