Manufacturing Strategy Put in Socio-Economic Context
Explaining and modelling manufacturing strategy has traditionally—and correctly—been done in the context of internationalisation (Dunning, 1988), the business (Hill, 1985) and, more specifically, the products produced and the markets served (Hayes and Wheelwright, 1984). The logic in manufacturing strategy development is to link the way in which the firm competes through its products in the market to the design of the manufacturing system—its facilities, processes and organisational arrangements.
