Because the discrete manufacturing industry is based on consumer spending, the profitability of your company depends on the way you optimize your production and distribution abilities. While large companies tend to have more leeway to increase purchasing, production, and marketing, the small companies can compete by producing specialized products. No matter the size of your company, staying informed about every aspect of your manufacturing process is the best way for you to understand and apply the principles of growth that will help you reach and maintain top status in your industry.
