31st Annual Meeting of the Decision Sciences Institute
San Francisco, CA
Manufacturing organizations are renovating their factories to become increasingly competitive in global markets. With this renovation they are focusing their attention on innovative programs. Since managerial time is limited, the increase in attention to these programs means less emphasis on traditional manufacturing planning and control systems. The research question asked by this study is: How effective are traditional manufacturing planning and control systems for increasing factory competitiveness?
