NCR (Manufacturing) Ltd, the sole manufacturer of the company's Automated Teller Machines (ATMs), sees the 1990s as a demanding challenge. The Dundee, Scotland plant, with 36% of the world's ATM market (excluding Japan) and the 1990 winner of the Best UK Factory Award, is aiming to become the undisputed leader. To improve upon its existing position, the site is actively pursuing improvements to its design‐to‐manufacture cycle — Design For Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) is a key part of this strategy.
