Abstract

The ability of small businesses to make and adjust to the paradigm shift needed to benefit from the Japanese production theory has been questioned in the literature. Zangwill 1992 questioned the limits of the Japanese Production Theory JPT and in a subsequent paper Zangwill, 1994 held on to his argument about the limits of the Japanese Production Theory. In this paper, the Japanese Production Theory is first discussed, followed by a discussion of the consistency between the traditional EOQ theory and the Japanese production theory, critique of the Zangwills argument,and issues related to the relevance of the Japanese production theory to small businesses.
