In today's evolving and highly-competitive environment, some of the key parameters that differentiate world-class manufacturers from others are quality, cost effective, flexibility and innovation. In fact, there are three main principles, which drive World-Class Manufacturing (WCM):

  • Implementation of just in time and lean management, which leads to reduction in wastage, and thereby reduction in cost
  • Implementation of total quality management, which leads to reduction of defects and encourages zero tolerance towards defects
  • Implementation of total preventive maintenance, which leads to any stoppage of production through mechanical failure

Join this webinar to learn from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) - one of the largest automotive manufacturers in the world - and Tarkett, a global leader in producing floor and wall coverings, along with ProcessMAP, the most trusted EHS cloud solution provider, to learn how adopting the principles of WCM drives EHS excellence.
