By Dr Lisa Lang

Mound Laser and Photonics Center Inc. of Kettering OH, MLPC Kettering OHsuccessfully completed the Velocity Scheduling System Coaching Program and their story was captured.  MLPC is a custom job shop focused on laser-based microfabrication for medical, automotive, microelectronics and defense industries, among others. They were already very successful, but wanted to take it to the next level.  They suspected that focusing on their scheduling could help them do that — and they were right!

The interesting thing about this story is the initial resistance to the very first step of implementing Velocity Scheduling System.  To say this this group was skeptical about cutting work in process and abandoning their efficiency mentality is an understatement.
