We have seen advanced technologies to apply new materials at the enterprise. At NPO Saturn I have seen a range of manufacturing activities that could be potentially useful for our other enterprises due to the transition to the new industrial model. It is my first visit to NPO Saturn. I have been impressed by the lean-management processes and now our company has got big plans in this direction. We have a good deal of groundwork, but these processes are not developed quite well at all our enterprises. Therefore, we have something to learn".
