Posits that disappointing results from the implementation of best practices are due to a failure to link practices to specific measurable objectives, failure to prioritise best practices, and a lack of analysis of necessary infrastructure practices. Describes the development of a framework for selecting practices which will improve operational performance in the area of manufacturing planning and control. Suggests that selection should be based on strength of relationships between practices and performance objectives and take into account dependency relationships between practices. Integrates theory and empirical data to investigate links between practices and performance, thereby providing a framework for selecting practices based on objectives and dependency relationship between practices. Case studies, structured interviews and postal questionnaires were used to develop and validate the framework presented.
