For organizations which desire to increase profits while minimizing liability, this text is an invaluable guide. It explains how to introduce flexibility into manufacturing facilities through the modification of current computer software and systems. Rather than taking the cost-prohibitive approach of discarding the processes a company already has in play and starting from scratch, organizations can achieve their goal of becoming agile manufacturers by modifying existing systems. The author utilizes numerous case studies from companies such as Xerox, General Motors, Harley-Davidson, and Motorola to explore the current software movement, from MRP II (benefits and limitations) to alternative methods employed by companies attempting to align their software with new world class methodologies.For manufacturing managers and MIS employees struggling with inadequate systems, Software and the Agile Manufacturer offers the practical solutions they need to successfully navigate the difficult transitional period on the way to world-class status.
