Features Aggregates Technology
Measuring for success: What it is, why it’s important, what to measure and why and how to get started

February 19, 2019  By  Andrew Snook

Aggregate production is a low margin business and those in the business have little power to influence the price of their products. These facts drive the need for constant cost reduction and the most effective way to reduce costs over time is through a smart system of measurements that give you the information you need to make wise decisions for plant options.

Presenter: Greg Helfrich, ELRUS Aggregate Systems
