Huesmann, Tim (2011) Identification of Approaches to Increase Responsiveness for Selected Production Units at the ANDREAS STIHL AG & Co. KG. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
Being responsive towards any kind of changes in the market place or unforeseen disruptions of the production process is an ability the majority of manufacturing firms in industry probably would like to claim for their organisation. Facing the situation of customers demanding an increasing variety of products and hence lower production volumes per model, the current mass production approaches at ANDREAS STIHL AG & Co. KG only result in a limited degree of responsiveness. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is the analysis of three selected production units with regard to responsiveness in order to deduce best practices and develop approaches for optimisation in a final step of the analysis.
