ABB Business Unit Management Consulting (BUMC), in co- operation with and supported by ABC Technologies (ABC Tech), announces the formation of Global Manufacturing Value Creation Centers to promote Activity Based Management/Activity Based Costing software, methodologies and related services in manufacturing industries.
