Item description for Industrial Excellence: Management Quality in Manufacturing by Christoph H. Loch, Ludo Van Der Heyden, Luk N. Van Wassenhove, Arnd Huchzermeier & Cedric Escalle...
What does excellent manufacturing management mean? Management texts to date have emphasized that it is, above methods such as SPC or TQM, a matter of "intangibles" and "culture". This book takes the myth out of management excellence; it can be learned and practiced: 1. Manage thefour core processes, strategy formulation and deployment, product innovation, process development, and the supply chain, and 2. Pay attention to the seven dimensions of management quality, direction setting, integration, delegation, communication, participation, measurement, and employee development. Thus, we argue that an excellent manufacturing manager can move to a plant in a different industry and become, after an appropriate time to learn its specific technologies, an excellent manufacturing manager there as well. This book explains management quality and demonstrates how it is implemented, withnine plant tours through world-class factories from different industries.
