Applications of AMT and JIT suggest a different relationship should evolve between buyers and suppliers. At a detailed level this will involve supplier selection and monitoring against specified performance measures. For mutually beneficial relationships, however, more managerial choices will have to be made. The nature of these choices and the preferred route to success is the subject of the research programme outlined in the paper. By the study and development of best industrial practice, the intention is to effectively transfer the technology into more buyer/supplier relationships.
