Abstract

To achieve competitive performance in engineeringmanufacturing may require design of anumber of organisational elements. The systemsapproach is essential because engineeringmanufacturing is an integrated set of subsystems.The characteristics of an organisation that arerelevant to systems redesign are described. Theauthor then lists eight redesign principles and toolsto support a fivestep accepted approach to overallbusiness design. These are fully worked out ina detailed Appendix. One way to tackle necessarychange is by adopting a total quality andcompetitiveness achievement programme, rollingover two to three years of projects in parallel andin series.
