Lean Manufacturing Can Save American Manufacturing
A decade ago the debate about manufacturing leaving
the U.S. focused on the “giant sucking sound” of jobs
being pulled into Mexico. Today, the sound is louder
and more urgent than ever but its source is no longer
just south of the border. Open up the business section of
any newspaper – or perhaps read your own employer’s
latest press release – and you will quite likely learn about manufacturing relocating to Brazil, China, India, Bulgaria or Malaysia.
