From the award-winning developers of Factory Physics—a powerful leadership guide for breakthrough performance

A comprehensive guide that cuts through the hodgepodge of copycat initiatives, overblown buzzwords, confusing mathematics, and misguided software, Factory Physics for Managers is a breath of fresh air for operations managers and executives.

Written by the leaders and experts behind the bestselling Factory Physics, it’s a brilliant crash course in the practical science of operations designed to help you:

  • Achieve best possible profit, cash flow, and customer service
  • Attain highest return with existing Lean, Six Sigma, and ERP initiatives
  • Manage your capacity, inventory, response time, and variability with high predictability
  • Simplify management of complexity using existing IT systems
  • Use the fundamentals of science to ensure your operation’s success
  • See your company and procedures more clearly
  • Improve intuition, decision making, and strategy execution

A strategy of imitation is not much of a strategy. Most every company uses the common continuous improvement initiatives. This highly accessible guide addresses but goes beyond other business approaches such as Lean, Six Sigma, and Theory of Constraints by offering a customizable plan that you can apply to any manufacturing-based industry or supply chain.
