"My opinion is that this book is the first that can really do the job of informing production and operation managers of the know-how of Synchronous Manufacturing The authors have accomplished the very demanding and most difficult job of molding into one excellent text what was previously available only in scattered publications and as unwritten material. I congratulate them for their accomplishment"
