We are a global association of independent manufacturing and supply-chain experts devoted to sharing knowledge and experiences on proven, profitable management processes, and on emerging technologies.

By reviewing business processes, and analyzing how companies in a wide span of industries effectively operate, implement and integrate modern management approaches including: Collaboration-B2B, Supply Chain Management, Lean Manufacturing and Lean Supply Chain, Enterprise Resource Planning, Sales and Operations Planning, Demand Management, Advanced Planning Systems, and focused performance measurements (KPI's), we clarify and simplify these management techniques and identify the key success factors. Our goal is to disseminate information through articles, papers and educational materials, to help companies implement and integrate improvements while avoiding excessive Information Technology investments. This will help companies achieve the most rapid time-to-benefit for these important management systems -- supported by focused software tools, and behavior changes across the organization.

Our members, through their consulting firms, provide education and consulting services to manufacturing and distribution companies throughout the world.
