Abstract

Discusses the efforts made in Saab′s new factory to overcome problems of motivation and absenteeism in the workforce. Describes the assembly system, which combines working on static units with some line assembly. Surmises that a previous attempt to employ these methods failed because management still used the old methods, the new purpose‐designed plant has more potential and, importantly, space for expansion.
