Quick Response Manufacturing

What is QRM?

Quick Response Manufacturing or QRM is a strategic way to reduce the lead times throughout the enterprise. QRM manufacturing increases productivity, bringing your products to market in faster response times and increases profitability and ROI.

As the trends in manufacturing continue to shift toward customized products in demand with shorter lead times, implementing a QRM structure can assist in building a strong foundation that can address the principal concerns of a rapidly changing market.

QRM manufacturing helps in the following ways:

  • Responding to customer’s needs by rapidly designing and manufacturing products customized to those needs.
  • Reduces lead times in non-manufacturing functions, such as shipping, purchasing, customer service and quoting.
  • Reduction in internal lead times results in improved quality, lower total cost, and quicker response for the customer.

Quick Response Manufacturing works with other management approaches like Just-In-Time (JIT), Six Sigma, Theory of Constraints (TOC), and Total Quality Management (TQM) to enhance these methods and improve the quick response supply chain. QRM has specific tools, methodologies and principles that are designed to meet the varying needs of high-mix, custom-engineered manufacturing conditions.
