    Yet when it comes to managing delays or challenges, many manufacturers tend to focus on individual operators in the same way they would a piece of capital equipment. Individuals respond well to equitable and fair management, which means the investment required to decrease labor-related delays on production needs to be spread across all operators and support staff on the line.
