  5. 5. © 2018 Tulip Interfaces, Inc. Lean manufacturing has stayed away from IT - until now A new approach to Manufacturing Technology Traditional Manufacturing IT is hard and expensive to deploy. This required executives removed from the operations, rather than end users, to scope and impose systems on the shop floor. This results in long development processes and systems that are always lagging behind the needs of the business. Bottom Up Manufacturing IT such as Tulip, takes a radically different approach - it is Self-Serve. This means Process Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, Quality Engineers and other end-users of the software are empowered to drive the digital transformation of their organizations for the first time. Empower End Users Agile IT = Lower Cost Faster Time to Value SELF-SERVE MANUFACTURING APPS BENEFITS
