Expert in Automation Project Management and Procurement, Lean Process Development and Implementation
Expert believes that the best cost-to-value solution requires two critical factors for success: first, the design or improvement of the existing manufacturing process by identifying the related improvement opportunities that result in incremental cash flow. Second, the automation of the improved process by utilizing technologies and equipment that deliver manufacturing flexibility and agility which maximize the return-on-invested-capital.
