Shows how a firm specializing in water meter manufacture (ABB Kent Messtechnik in Germany) has made use of new integrated assembly and test equipment which has meant halving its number of operators and reducing leadtimes from ten days to 40 minutes. Furthermore, it has done this without any enforced redundancies owing to the fact that workers have been assimilated in other areas of production. Posits that the speedy approach produces an operating system quicker than a fully planned one.
