Says Ronnie Burton, M A Metal’s vice president of operations and a student in Cummins’ Six Sigma Supplier Training: “Our contributions to this [project taught us how we can use Six Sigma to improve product and service delivery to all of our metalforming and stamping customers.” More at www.mametal.com.
