When you are running efficiently, you save time and money, which will lead to many other benefits over time. When traditional performance measures are used, there are a lot more errors and slower turn around times. According to MUSE, when using a traditional method, delivered parts are only on time 85% of the time whereas when the demand method is used, parts are delivered with a 99% success rate.
