Many of the problems manufacturers face seem to defy intuitive solutions . . . and are full of uncertainty and risk. But every situation—no matter how tentative or unsettling it seems—can be logically analyzed and systematically mapped out.
High-Mix, Low-Volume Manufacturing covers the entire spectrum of manufacturing-related topics, from competitive strategies through performance measurements. Although there is a special focus on high-mix, low-volume manufacturing, there is much useful and valuable information for people in all other types of manufacturing. This book is a thorough reference for practitioners and academics interested in how manufacturing should and can be run.
High-Mix, Low-Volume Manufacturing is a groundbreaking work, integrating ideas from many sources. In this book, manufacturing fundamentals are re-examined in a way that often gets overlooked by corporate strategists. This book is a comprehensive, practical, and detailed educational reference covering “global” concepts through “tactical” ideas in a clear and concise manner. The goal of this book is to develop the manufacturing core competencies required to obtain a competitive advantage. This book has both an immediate and long-term payoff.About the Author:
