Manufacturers must reduce costs to remain competitive and improve profits in today’s marketplace. Industry needs leaders skilled in identifying and eliminating wastes within manufacturing and administrative processes. Industry faces a shortage of skilled leaders able to champion the lean culture change. Employers need to train their employees how to identify and eliminate unnecessary costs.
