Abstract

Further discussion is provided on the findings of a postal questionnaire survey on current production management practices, reviewed in Part I. Recommendations are also made for a proactive approach by companies to improve their production management through the development and introduction of performance indicators and to improve the efficiency of the company by the use of appropriate production management techniques. Once a written outline of objectives, programme of work, timing and reporting mechanisms is in place, a management representative responsible for production is to be appointed. Overall, the findings suggest that a more professional approach is required to production management in the UK.
