Modelling output flexibility in process industry
Luleå tekniska universitet.
2000 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper presents a model for evaluating manufacturing output flexibility in the process industries. Using an interview survey, perceptions of flexibility were explored in eight plants in four different process industries. The result gave a consistent picture of the most important dimensions of flexibility for the plants investigated. Operational and strategic flexibility seem to be prioritised whilst tactical flexibility was assigned less importance. Other salient dimensions were set-up times, organisational inertia of staff and new product development. A model for evaluating operational, tactical and strategic flexibility in process plants developed from the interviews is finally presented.
