Development of an Integrated Framework for Assessing and Improving the Performance of Manufacturing Industries in Developing Countries

In developing countries, there is an overwhelming challenge to diversify the economy from the primary sectors to more value adding and income generating sustainable secondary or manufacturing sectors. As global competitiveness intensifies, it is imperative that manufacturing organizations in developing countries can compete at a global level. This research focuses on Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) and the wider Caribbean region. However, its applicability and relevance is extensive. This paper investigates the manufacturing techniques/practices currently implemented in T&T with focus on companies that are compliant with quality and health and safety policies. This study advocates the need for a strategic approach for the successful implementation of world-class manufacturing (WCM) techniques/practices in T&T manufacturing industry. The methodology as well as research instruments developed and used are presented.

Opracowanie Zintegrowanych Schematów Ramowych do Oceny I Poprawy Wydajności Produkcyjnych Branż Przemysłowych W Krajach Rozwijających Się

W krajach rozwijających się istnieje wszechobecne dążenie do dywersyfikacji gospodarki i przejścia od pierwotnych gałęzi w kierunku branż pozwalających uzyskać większą wartość dodaną i generujących wyższe zyski, należących do sektorów zrównoważonych, zaawansowanych technologicznie lub przetwórczych. Ponieważ globalna konkurencja jest coraz bardziej intensywna, oczywistym imperatywem jest fakt, iż organizacje produkcyjne w krajach rozwijających się mogą konkurować na poziomie globalnym. Niniejsze badania skupiają się na Trynidadzie i Tobago (T&T) i w szerszym pojęciu - rejonie Karaibów, jednak zakres ich zastosowania oraz przydatność są o wiele szersze. Niniejszy artykuł omawia badania dotyczące technik i praktyk wytwarzania stosowanych obecnie w Trynidadzie i Tobago, skupiając się na firmach, które działają zgodnie z zasadami polityki jakości oraz zdrowia i bezpieczeństwa (BHP). To badanie popiera potrzebę opracowania strategicznego podejścia w celu pomyślnego wdrożenia światowej klasy technik i praktyk wytwarzania (WCM) w przemyśle Trynidadu i Tobago. Przedstawiona jest metodologia badań, a także opracowane i stosowane narzędzia badawcze.
