Target is the official publication of the Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME). Its purpose is to share manufacturing and organizational best practices in all types of manufacturing operations from job shops to high-volume repetitive factories. Target is written for operations professionals, primarily senior and mid-level manufacturing management, who are continuously reinventing products and services to meet tough competitive challenges.
Target covers a wide range of topics, offering "how-to" information on productivity improvements, leading-edge concepts, and lessons learned from people who've implemented them. It features articles and columns that are designed to help readers improve their global manufacturing competitiveness, whether they need to learn the fundamentals of implementing the latest manufacturing strategies or about innovative improvement concepts.
Target which is published four times per year, is distributed only to AME members. Target Online is AME’s new monthly digital publication and is emailed to both AME members and over 40,000 non-member manufacturing executives. The Target archives offer the full text of most articles published in Target Magazine since 1985 and Target Online since April 2011. The archives are open to AME members only.
