    What is management missing?

    The value added manufacturing plants are aging, equipment is outdated and the plants are being strangled with cost reductions. Good training is nearly non-existant due to restraints on travel and budgets.Equipment is amortized over 17 years even though the vendors stated life span is as little as 8 years.
    Meanwhile the non-value added overhead such as corporate headquarters are equipped with state of the art furnishings and equipment. Instead of looking to the plants to save money management needs to look into its own backyard.
