The purposes of this research are to remove some of the confusion surrounding the characterisation of lean systems; to delve deeper into the human issues associated with lean; and to explore the complexity of an established lean system to identify issues which affect its success and ongoing continuance. Using the mixed methods of literature analysis, semi-structured interviews and document analysis, we examine the lean implementation in one site of an international car manufacturer. We claim sev...

Fuzzy set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (fsQCA) is a methodology for obtaining linguistic summarizations from data that are associated with cases. It has recently been described as a collection of 13 steps [7]. In this paper we focus on how to greatly speed up some of the computationally intensive steps of fsQCA and show how to use the speed-up equations to obtain some interesting and important properties of fsQCA. These properties not only provide additional understanding about fsQCA, but al...

Academia has produced theoretical and practical knowledge about lean for over 30 years, and for that reason, research is in a mature phase. To organise this knowledge, we propose a typology of lean schools of thought. Schools were categorised into two paradigms of organisational analysis – interpretivist and functionalist – to clarify theoretical assumptions about how each conducts scientific investigations and what contributions they generate. Seven schools were identified: systems engineering,...

Abstract This research takes a first step toward a more complete understanding of the effects of lean production on both operational and worker health and safety performance. Previous operations management literature considered only the operational performance implications of lean while previous safety literature considered only the worker health and safety implications of lean. This research considers both perspectives by providing empirical evidence on the impact of lean on operational and hea...

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the use and effect of benchmarking in manufacturing companies.Design/methodology/approach – A total of 23 companies were interviewed longitudinally in 1993, 2004 and 2010. For the study a standard questionnaire was used, and the questions asked concerned the best practices used in the companies and their operational performance.Findings – The use of benchmarking has changed a lot over the last 15 years. It grew a lot after the first study was mad...

Although managerial knowledge spillovers have long been claimed to be a major benefit of foreign direct investment (FDI), such spillovers have not yet been systematically analysed. This paper adds to the literature by analysing the nature and extent of managerial knowledge spillovers from FDI through the diffusion of management practices. Taking into account the tacit and explicit elements of management practices and distinguishing between industry and non‐industry specific practices, the paper ...

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore the possibilities and pitfalls of longitudinal studies in the field of operations management (OM).Design/methodology/approach – A longitudinal study conducted in Finland was analyzed from the methodological point of view. In the theoretical part, a framework for analyses was created by studying the literature of longitudinal studies within and without the OM field.Findings – Longitudinal studies are important in revealing root‐cause effects. They...

Abstract The bottom-line financial impact of supply chain management has been of continuing interest. Building on the operations strategy literature, Fisher's (1997) conceptual framework, a survey of 259 U.S. and European manufacturing firms, and secondary financial data, we investigate the relationship between supply chain fit (i.e., strategic consistencies between the products’ supply and demand uncertainty and the underlying supply chain design) and the financial performance of the firm. The ...

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to study how, in recent decades, manufacturing sites have reacted to changes in their business environment by developing their management practices. This also makes it possible to predict the behavior and lifecycles of the new practices adopted by companies.Design/methodology/approach – The study is longitudinal, conducted in 1993, 2004 and 2010. It used a standard questionnaire, based on the “Made in Europe” benchmarking study. The results were analysed by...

The focus on the sequential nature of the improvement initiatives has neglected the synergistic effects among practices and literature lacks research on complementarity between internal and external bundles of practices. The aim of this paper is to test the existence of complementarity among internal and external just-in-time bundles. We run statistical analysis using the third round of High Performance Manufacturing international research project data set and we find that upstream and downstrea...
