Drastic changes are taking place in the manufacturing environment—both in continuous process manufacturing and discrete parts manufacturing. Data communications and computer technologies are forging new disciplines and relationships in manufacturing management. Whether it be a new relationship between product design engineers and manufacturing engineers or between business planners and manufacturing technology planners, most observers cannot avoid the growing interest in links MIS and real-time production control. Along with this trend to link various levels of management information systems with real-time production control, comes new awareness of the need to link manufacturing competence directly with corporate goals. This presentation will address the issues and problems associated with blending advanced manufacturing technologies and new management practices.
