In a new whitepaper from Preactor, manufacturing professionals at U.S. Paint describe how they realized a 50% decrease in work in progress, and a 20% decrease in production lead times. As a direct result of Preactor APS software, these improvements have led to a 20% reduction in total finished goods inventory for U.S. Paint, which is a market leader supplying coatings for exterior automotive parts. With an ongoing commitment to lean manufacturing, U.S. Paint has found Preactor to be not just a powerful solution to fixing short term problems, but also one that keeps on delivering benefits year after year, according to the company.
