Preface

Preface

This book is a summary of the experiences I have had working with many Fortune 500 companies such as GE, 3M, National Manufacturing, Sherwin-Williams, Black & Decker, Manco, and others on collaborative processes. The rationale for this collaboration was that in today’s global economy each company needed to work together to enhance corporate processes to become “Best of Breed.” It is amazing what can be learned from each company during yearly technology sessions when best technologies are shared so that every company reaps the benefits. The ideas and strategies explored in this book form a compendium of those best practices and shared technology over the past 25 years.

The inspiration for writing this book began when I won the award of first place in the case study track at the International Symposium of Supply Chain Management held at Kent State University in 2010. My specialty focused on applications that clarified the newest technologies with Lean initiatives and how those technological advances affect the Green environment. The purpose of this book is to break down the processes used in creating a world-class company so that any manager interested in cutting the fat can implement the technological advances now available.
