Escape from the unnecessary: some guidelines for production management
1999 (English)In: Production planning & control (Print), ISSN 0953-7287, E-ISSN 1366-5871, Vol. 10, no 2, p. 194-199Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper emphasizes the importance to a manufacturing company of decreasing the product structures, both in width and depth, thereby shortening the throughput times, standardizing and reducing complexity, and identifying bottlenecks in order to increase efficiency and profitability. Having once been a production control and plant manager at Ericsson and Benzlers, the author has drawn upon his experience in researching this paper. Other influences include knowledge of well-known trends in production management, e.g. WorldClass Manufacturing, Lean Production, Time-Based Management, OPT, etc. The paper also stresses that it is difficult to present real new ideas concerning production management, but nevertheless discussions and publications of ideas and incentives to achieve an efficient production of products and services must continue.
