Overview

"The Quantum Leap: Next Generation documents the forces shaping today's demand-driven markets and equips organizations with the knowledge and insight to navigate the transition to Demand Flow Technology - a unique combination of innovative management philosophy, revolutionary manufacturing practices, and flexible employees." The first edition of The Quantum Leap played a key role in some of the most dramatic manufacturing success stories of the past decade. This update of the original looks at the impact and implications of recent industry trends, new technologies, and emerging business practices. But the focus remains the same: how to build sustainable competitive advantage by responding to customer demand in real time, every day. The Quantum Leap: Next Generation provides a mathematically based roadmap for implementing DFT and making the customer the center of the manufacturing company's universe.
