QRM result: from 8 to only 2 weeks to manufacture
This story, published in “The Fabricator” Magazine, illustrates how Phoenix benefited from several counter-intuitive QRM policies like:

- Hiring more people for extra capacity actually reduced cost (instead of layoffs)
- Doing more setups was worth the extra labor time, because it saved much more time in indirect labor and other costs.
