Abstract:

(Producer) This program goes inside high-tech factories to see how products ranging from toys and makeup to bulldozers and helicopters are made. Marcus Crotts of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers, James Womack of the Lean Manufacturing Institute, and professors James Solberg and Herb Moskowitz of Purdue University share their insights into the workings of the value stream -- a process of going from raw materials to finished products that today includes on-demand fabrication, advanced robotics, and zero-defect quality control standards.
