About this product
- DescriptionDespite the numerous competitive advantages of one-of-a-kind production (OKP), the low efficiency and high costs associated with OKP companies threaten to push their business opportunities into the hands of cheaper overseas suppliers. One-of-a-Kind Production introduces a vel strategy and techlogy to help OKP companies to efficiently mass-produce customized products. In One-of-a-Kind Production, case studies from OKP companies are used to validate the feasibility and effectiveness of the OKP strategy and techlogy. These case studies include: * a structural steel construction company,* a manufacturer of specifically ordered compressors and refrigeration systems,* a customized high pressure vessel manufacturing company, and* a custom window and door manufacturer. To help readers understand OKP strategy and techlogy, the authors offer a year's free access to the OKP Management and Control Software System. This system is based on a new integrated production control and management concept, namely product production structure. It is a useful tool - and One-of-a-Kind Production is a valuable guide - for production engineers and managerial staff in manufacturing companies, as well as for university researchers and graduate students.
