Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the contribution of production and operations managers (POMs) and logistics managers (LMs) in improving manufacturing and service operations, comparing experiences in Australia and Britain. Design/methodology/approach – The findings are based...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe the construction of a key model for knowledge management (KM) systems using AHP‐QFD for the semiconductor industry in Taiwan. Design/methodology/approach – The performance evaluation matrix was modified to set up a standard performance...
Purpose – The development of a local area supply chain network (LASCaN) is only as good as the skills and technological capabilities of the companies within that network. Recent studies have pointed to the lack of capability amongst local suppliers and hence many OEMs have now moved towards...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to describe new methods to manage variation in complex manufacturing process chains and to show synergies between the variation risk management (VRM) and six‐sigma approaches. Design/methodology/approach – The research methodology was experimental...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to consider the interaction among shop floor control (SFC) strategies (order review/release, dispatching, and rework strategies) and its impact on the performance of wafer fabrication. How to select a suitable set of SFC strategies in wafer fabrication is...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to present the results of an investigation of advanced manufacturing technology (AMT) implementation practices and performance at 82 discrete‐parts durable goods manufacturing plants in the USA. Design/methodology/approach – A mail survey was used to...
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to propose a methodology to reduce the potential risk of failures in high‐volume manufacturing. Design/methodology/approach – The research documented here represents an even balance of theoretical and practical development, with validation of the...
