Advanced manufacturing in the form of FCIM is seen as a way to help even the smallest suppliers make rapid shifts in capacity, provide a much wider range of products, and achieve far higher levels of quality and batch-to-batch consistency.
Plant managers and production line foremen can be wildly enthusiastic about FCIM and other techniques, but these technologies will never be embraced by small business-the necessary investments will not be made-unless CEOS, chief financial officers, and marketing managers are also convinced.
Other pieces of equipment are linked in an FCIM network.
