Organizes the wide‐ranging literature on “new wave manufacturing” factors which impact on the flow of materials into six themes which are related to a conceptual model. The six themes are: the effects of under‐capacity loading; the role of pull scheduling; the reduction of variability; the reduction of throughput time; the effects of reduced throughput time and of schedule stability on outbound logistics; and the application of synchronous flow to inbound logistics. Concludes that case study methodology offers wider potential to research casual links in the potentially complex interactions involved.
