Value chain development An account of some implementation problems

Value chain development An account of some implementation problems Describes the problems recorded between 1991 and 1995 when attempting to re‐engineer the value chains of a medium‐sized electrical equipment manufacturing company in the UK. To provide guidance during the re‐engineering process a time‐based framework for analysis has been developed; this is underpinned by throughput time reduction and time compression strategies.

Abstract

Describes the problems recorded between 1991 and 1995 when attempting to re‐engineer the value chains of a medium‐sized electrical equipment manufacturing company in the UK. To provide guidance during the re‐engineering process a time‐based framework for analysis has been developed; this is underpinned by throughput time reduction and time compression strategies. Development takes place within a post MRP environment with full kanban control of both internal and external supply chains in a cellular structure. Aims to provide researchers and practitioners with a diary of events and problems encountered during the restructuring process. Conclusions reveal a complex set of constraints which hinder development and little or no linkage to overall financial performance measurement.
