"Iowa is a Manufacturing State"
Interesting to see that Iowa's manufacturing economy is six times bigger than agriculture. It's good for people to recognize that manufacturing is important, if not critical, and it is certainly overlooked. I think that's mainly because we don't have TV shows set in factories! Manufacturing is not, and probably will never be, a “glamour” profession.
This state of Iowa report mentions lean, of course, as a core strategy. I hope the state didn't waste too much money on reports and subcomittees. The real work is done in the manufacturing shopfloors… good luck to those of you who read this from Iowa. Do you think your state is helping, or will help, or are the politicians just making noise?
