9781466595422: Manufacturing Productivity in China (Industrial and Systems Engineering Series)

Chinese manufacturing industries continue to impact the world economy. It is important to understand what is happening in China and the uniqueness of Chinese manufacturing industries. Manufacturing Productivity in China brings together a group of authors from academia and industry to give an industrial engineering micro viewpoint instead of an economical macro viewpoint to this subject. It includes first-hand case studies to better understand the competitiveness of Chinese manufacturing industries.

Although many researchers attribute China’s manufacturing success to the competitiveness of low labor and materials cost, in reality, many other factors are at play. Investment in manufacturing engineering education and innovation also plays a role. With twelve case studies written by foremost authorities from Tsinghua University, this book covers a broad range of manufacturing industries―transitional, state-owned, and private enterprises. However, each case study highlights the innovation of Chinese manufacturing and enhancement of production efficiency, with concepts bolstered by a significant number of figures and tables.

The book explores the history of China’s success, beginning with the planned economy from 1949-1977, to the reforms of the latter part of the twentieth century, to the emergence of industrial engineering and innovation. An inside look at the stories behind the successful manufacturing processes, this book provides an unbiased view of the success of "Made in China".
