Identifies factors influencing the adaptation of manufacturing processes for international transfer. Proposes that these factors should be divided into those affecting the operation of the process in its new location, and those that influence the transfer itself. This differentiation generates three constructs which characterize a manufacturing process: appropriateness, robustness, and transferability. Individually, they inform practitioners on questions of process adaptation, location selection, training, and technology choice. Together they describe the ease with which a manufacturing process can be transferred: its fitness for transfer.
