UNSPECIFIED. (1996) Product market, turbulence and time compression - Three dimensions of an integrated approach to manufacturing system design. INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF OPERATIONS & PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT, 16 (9). 34-&. ISSN 0144-3577Full text not available from this repository.
Discusses the conventional approach to manufacturing system design. Argues that this top-down, uni-directional approach is not sufficiently robust or easy to implement, particularly in brown-field sites where maintaining focus has been found to be difficult. Suggests a three-dimensional approach which incorporates product-market considerations through focus, turbulence minimization and time compression, and looks at each of these three dimensions in detail. Presents the generic steps for implementing the new approach and describes a case example.
