Abstract

Recent innovations applied to the design and management ofproduction in the United States have been termedpostFordist, in an effort to distinguish these methodsfrom those of largescale massproduction characteristic of earlierdecades. These efforts, however, may be vulnerable to criticism fromboth a conceptual and also a practical position. Specifically, suggeststhat postFordist methods not only fail to live up to their ideologicalpromise, but are inappropriate to our currentpostindustrial state of diminishing manufacturing output.
