“I think you will agree with me that Michelle “gets it,” and “it” is an infectious passion for what we call manufacturing! Her exuberance for manufacturing and industry was and still is infectious. The fact that she has spent more than a decade touring the world, visiting more than 75 plants in 12 countries, and writing about her experiences in the manufacturing environment signifies her continued zest for learning and sharing best practices with others. I know that if you have half an interest in how things are made, the processes that make it happen, and the technology and innovations that are used to make our daily lives comfortable, you will really enjoy Volume 3 of Modern Manufacturing: An Inside Look into Game-Changing Processes.” – Randy Breaux, President, Motion Industries.

The finale of this three-volume series demonstrates how augmented reality connects humans and machines to drive the future of modern manufacturing.

This volume explores best practices and tools, including the strategic utilization of planning and scheduling, creative craftmanship, training, automation, workplace excellence programs, culture change, employee empowerment, continuous improvement, strategic facility design, and computerized maintenance management software to boost overall plant performance, increase efficiency, and improve reliability.

Since 2008, Michelle Segrest has been touring manufacturing facilities worldwide for major industry trade publications. She has toured more than 75 manufacturing facilities in 12 countries on three continents. Each plant made a memorable impression.
