|Source Reduction - The effort was to plan to scrap less of th product by tightening our control of cut lengths both for sold product and for quality check samples. Example: Instead of cutting 2 feet of cable to test, can we use 10 inches. OR If we need 2000 feet of cable and we can control the length to a higher degree, we don't have to make 2100 just to be sure to get 2000 feet.|
