Chapter Objectives: The purpose of this chapter is to show the reader how we can link technology and programme issues to the manufacturing strategy. In doing so, we are able to assess the strategic implications of changes. Having read this chapter, the reader should become familiar with:
  • • The gap between strategic management and technology issues.

  • • The derivation of key technology (KTVs) and key programme variables (KPVs).

  • • Why strategic performance indicators (SPIs) are decomposed to measures of manufacturing performance (MOMPs), which are then further decomposed to key technology and key programme variables (KTVs/KPVs).

  • • The structure and mechanics of the technology and programme models.

  • • Sample KTVs and KPVs.
