An empirical validation of integrated manufacturing business excellence model

An empirical validation of integrated manufacturing business excellence model The integrated manufacturing system is one of the foremost operational strategies adapted by manufacturing organizations to overcome environmental and manufacturing uncertainties and to come out from global economic crisis. Adding value to the manufacturing industry in terms of sustainability and also in compliance with the requirement of the stakeholders, a new approach was designed by developing an integrated model. In this paper, the authors have adopted various literature reviews to develop an integrated model for manufacturing industries called integrated manufacturing business excellence system. The integrated manufacturing business excellence system is nothing but a bundle of global manufacturing management concepts, namely total quality management, total productive maintenance, corporate social responsibility, knowledge management, lean manufacturing, agile manufacturing, and sustainable manufacturing. The proposed model comprises of ten constructs, namely visionary leadership and management commitment, systematic approach to management, customer focus and satisfaction, continuous improvement and innovation, workforce management, manufacturing strategy, manufacturing practice audit system, and technology management and information system. In order to test the proposed framework by empirical means, a research instrument was constructed with a total number of 91 items identified under the above ten constructs of integrated manufacturing business excellence system model and collected data scientifically. The psychometric test results of our data set are within defined ranges. Further, we performed a confirmatory analysis to check the validity of ten constructs. The results of multivariate analysis suggest that the proposed ten constructs are valid. The model has a good fit based on goodness of fit indices obtained through structural equation modeling approach. The International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology Springer Journals
