Using Proficy to Drive Cost Avoidance

Toray Plastics (America), Inc. is a world leader in high-performance films and other products. At Toray , the Information Systems team premise is that when the flow of information is delayed or not available, the cost of doing business rises. Toward that premise, the team relentlessly removes waste (muda).
