Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) is an expansion of time-based competition and is aimed at a single target - reducing lead times. The key difference between QRM apart from other time-based programs is that Quick Response Manufacturing is an approach for the entire organization, from the shop floor to the office, from reorganizing production to new product introduction, from accounting to performance measures, from purchasing to sales. In order to compete on speed, you must change the management mind-set and reduce lead times throughout the organization. And for those of you who have invested in lean manufacturing programs, Quick Response Manufacturing builds upon the ideas of kaizen, TQM, TPM, and others. Quick Response Manufacturing is a broad and powerful corporate strategy that holds tremendous benefits for your entire organization.Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) is an expansion of time-based competition and is aimed at a single target - reducing lead times.
