The MORE Manufacturing philosophy

The MORE Manufacturing philosophy

In Manufacturing (like professional sports), its all about minimising mistakes. Mistakes cost you the game.

Software should illuminate the problems and bottlenecks (Lean) and ring the alert bells, not hide the mess within obsure data.
