Norwell, MA, December 30, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- To-Increase, a provider of Microsoft Dynamics solutions for industrial equipment manufacturers (IEM), presents comparison results of quick response manufacturing (QRM) vs. Lean manufacturing for custom product production. In a comparison, both methodologies bring pros and cons to the manufacturing table.
Although lean manufacturing has been the key thought process for IEM, QRM brings a positive impact in the area of custom product development with low-volume. Today’s manufacturer should focus their construction software in-line with the right methodology that brings faster and more quality results for the customer needs.
"QRM doesn’t replace lean manufacturing methods, but when there’s a customer need for a one-off or custom product, QRM has more positive aspects vs. lean methods. It comes down to increasing productivity and reducing lead-time – with custom products at low-volume, the right decision is to integrate your construction software with the QRM methodology," says Luciano Cunha, Global Industry Director, To-Increase.
Cunha goes on to point out some of the advantages of QRM, including:
• Material control
• Organizational structure
• QRM’s origin was constructed specifically for custom products with low-volume
