Val Zanchuck, President of Graphicast, Inc. in Jaffrey, NH, talks about how the Predictor and the Flow Analysis within Protected Flow Manufacturing™ gives Graphicast the information they need to start offering better lead times, or to know how much excess capacity they need to maintain so that if a customer requests an expedite – they have the confidence in knowing that if they drop that job in out of sequence they have the capacity to absorb it and it won’t cause other jobs to be late.
