Abstract
Today's optical manufacturing industry is facing increasing pressure on cost, quality, and delivery performance. There is also in an environment of decreasing batch sizes, a move towards higher tolerances - usually for very quality conscious customers. A frequent response is to invest in new manufacturing technology. The alternative discussed here is to focus on improving the underlying processes.
