The management of production is faced with ever greater challenges as global competition mounts. How do firms compete on price while responding quickly to market changes? How do firms develop new products quickly without compromising quality, and how do they increase quality while reducing costs? This study addresses these questions as they confront Britain’s metalworking sector, focusing on the engineering/manufacturing interface in fifteen leading firms to draw important lessons for the future.
