Reengineering the Factory is a primer on world-class manufacturing methods for those who want to understand these methods at a conceptual level. Reengineering means redesigning a product to achieve new capabilities and customer satisfaction. To reengineer the factory, managers must take advantage of new manufacturing methods that were not previously available. Reengineering the Factory addresses the function, contribution, and interrelationships of those primary methods used in industry today. Eight world-class manufacturing (WCM) technologies are discussed in simple terms with an emphasis on integrating them within a TQM system, using illustrations, examples, and relationships.
