About CCAT’s Manufacturing and Supply Chain Integration
The Connecticut Center for Manufacturing Supply Chain Integration was established by the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology in 2005 to promote supply chain development and integration and to stimulate process improvement at small and medium-sized manufacturers in the aerospace and defense sector. To date, 244 process improvement projects have decreased lead time, cycle time and changeover time, and increased quality levels and space utilization allowing companies to take on new business, adding 686 high-wage jobs to the Connecticut economy.
