Quality & Manufacturing

Companies that value sustained success place a high priority on quality manufacturing. Savvy consumers, after all, are quick to expose the pretenders who seek shortcuts. But while executives across a variety of industries may agree in principle with the importance of quality in manufacturing, they often have diverse opinions on how that’s accomplished. Some insist that the bulk of the responsibility for quality control lies with the line managers; others believe that front-line workers carry most of the weight. getAbstract’s summaries on quality and manufacturing will provide compelling support for both sides – and everything in between. We present only the most pertinent information so you can make intelligent decisions tailored to your organization’s specialized wants and needs.
