Abstract

This paper develops an organizational learning–based perspective to examine the impact of CIM and FMS technologies on business strategy and organizational structure. Firms seeking to build competitive advantage through advances in information and manufacturing technologies need to engage in double–loop, generative learning in which experimentation, risk–taking and the formation of new skills become the basis for designing strategy and structure. Multifunctional teams, horizontal work flows, and redefined performance criteria are among some of the important changes required to instil double–loop, generative learning and to implement CIM and FIMS technology effectively.
