Managing Production

Oxford University Press

This chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to explore the implementation of advanced production methods (APM), and thereby evaluate contemporary claims that a new production paradigm is emerging. This is done through a case survey of fifteen UK metalworking companies, and a focus upon one of the most important interfaces within the production process — that between engineering and manufacturing. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.

Keywords:   advanced production methods, production process, metalworking, engineering, manufacturing
