Productivity Management, Quality Analysis and Control
Without the umbrella of protectionism, a fi rm has to survive on its own in the competitive jungle (See MM/M3 and CC/BF2). The task of raising the output per man in all the functional areas then forges into prominence. The fi rm soon realises that ‘Productivity Strategy’ and ‘Business Strategy’ are two sides of the same coin. The author of this lesson, T Sivanandam, General Manager, BPL Ltd. (see OP/PM09), illustrates the basic tricks of the trade. The focus is on manufacturing activities. Job Design, Work Study and the Learning Curve are some of the basic concepts, Why are some factories more productive than others? Hayes and Clark answered this question in a celebrated article in the Harvard Business Review in 1986. Here the author answers the same question, with live cases in 1997.
