    • Design — Computer Aided Design (CAD), Reverse Engineering, Enhanced Prototyping, and Simulations
    • Planning & Control — ERP, Six Sigma, Lean, Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM)
    • Technology — Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) equipment, Robotics, Laser, Plasma, Water jet, and other automated equipment
    • Workforce — Focused on highly skilled workers and supporting continuous training
    • Customer Satisfaction — Focused on relationships and awareness of customer needs and expectations
