Plexus Systems, providers of the on-demand manufacturing performance system Plexus Online, and Wixom, Mich.-based Maverick Solutions have teamed up to host an inaugural presentation of a recently released lean manufacturing study on April 25 at 11 a.m. at Plexus Systems at 1731 Harmon Road in Auburn Hills, Mich.

Plexus Systems is a sponsor and underwriter of the benchmarking study from industry analyst company The Aberdeen Group entitled "The Lean Benchmarking Study: Closing the Reality Gap." The presentation will be delivered by Jane Biddle, a vice president of global manufacturing at the Aberdeen Group.

The public is welcome to attend. To secure a space, individuals should call 888-470-5559 ext. 2 or e-mail sales@mavsolutions.net. Registration is required for admittance.

The timely research findings are vital for many of today's manufacturing companies faced with tight profit margins; escalating costs; demanding customers; and increasing competition. The research uncovers what is needed to institutionalize processes, improve productivity, prepare for new product launches, and drive culture change throughout the company and supplier base.

As noted in the final study, Plexus Online is designed around lean principles, letting manufacturers identify continuous improvement with unparalleled visibility. Lean manufacturing, quality management, ERP/MRP functionality and inventory tracking are central elements of Plexus Online.
