Supply Chain Services


Small manufacturers which operate within a supply chain can benefit from focusing on continual improvement to their manufacturing operations with regard to productivity, energy and environmental performance. 

Using tools such as the Pennsylvania SBDC EMAP Green Business Building Block Approach and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Smart Steps to Sustainability,  small manufacturing firms can more quickly identify and implement Lean Manufacturing approaches.



  • EMAP offers no-cost on-site assessments at small manufacturers to identify and prioritize opportunities to reduce costs, reduce waste, and improve productivity and efficiency.
