‘Tear out’ ideas worth keeping on technical, management, quality and regulatory topics will be the focus.

Introducing Craftsman’s Cribsheet- More Tools You Can Use

These four core subject areas will be represented at the top of the page; the topic of choice for the month will be highlighted and in bold type in the logo at the top of the page.

Craftsman’s Cribsheet will provide all ideas as a one page ‘Tool You Can Use’ – less narrative and more bullet point driven.

We are providing this information, monthly to  provide your team the relevant, valuable, information  to make a difference in your shop.

Look for the first Craftsman’s Cribsheet to start  in the September 2012 issue of Production Machining.
