Abstract

Although the need for companies to develop competitive manufacturing strategies is widely accepted, the processes or methodologies by which such strategies are developed are not well understood. The research described in this article identifies and describes four common characteristics of methodologies used successfully in the formulation of strategy. The results of this research can be applied by both industrialists and academics. Industrialists thinking of reformulating their manufacturing strategy could use the characteristics as a `checklist' to help them in determining the methodology to be used; and academics could use the work as a framework to aid further research into manufacturing strategy formulation.
