Get a sneak peek into Lean Labor, a new book by Gregg Gordon, Senior Director of Manufacturing Industry Marketing at Kronos, Inc., that focuses on the role labor can play in improving throughput, quality and performance for global competitive advantage.
With Lean Labor a manufacturer doesn’t have to possess the advantage of the lowest labor rate in its industry to remain competitive in a global market. The concept is simple: labor is only one of the resources required to manufacture a product. The other two are machines and materials, all combined through a proprietary process. Those companies that understand how to make that combination more productive will reduce their unit costs and lead times beyond a competitor who brings the solitary advantage of low cost labor.
