Rants, Tips, Quotes and Funnies
Factories are full of memorable moments, avoidable mistakes and funny situations. We would love to receive your manufacturing operations related; rants, tips, quotes, stories and funnies and if they make it to the top of the pile we might publish them in our blog. They need to be punchy, less than 250 words and have a catchy title. Avoid anything that might cause offence and please check your grammar.
Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your name, your position at the time and whether it is a rant, tip, quote, story or funny and avoid mentioning company names. Operations people don’t tend to be shy so let’s get blogging!
