The Manufacturing contribution to innovation

Author: De Meyer, Arnoud INSEAD Area: Technology and Operations ManagementIn: Journal of High Technology Management Research, Vol. 2, no. 2, 1991 Language: EnglishDescription: p. 223-236.Type of document: INSEAD ArticleNote: Please ask the Library for this articleAbstract: The description of the contribution of manufacturing to the innovation process is often limited to the task of providing the necessary information to enable the development function to create a design which is easy to manufacture, and to be instrumental in the fast ramp-up of the production process. Though these are important tasks, it is argued in this paper that there is a third aspect of manufacturing's contribution to innovation, namely the creation of a manufacturing system which is favourable to product innovation. This goes far beyond the design of an appropriate production process, but requires the creation of a general manufacturing environment which is amenable to product innovation.

The description of the contribution of manufacturing to the innovation process is often limited to the task of providing the necessary information to enable the development function to create a design which is easy to manufacture, and to be instrumental in the fast ramp-up of the production process.

This goes far beyond the design of an appropriate production process, but requires the creation of a general manufacturing environment which is amenable to product innovation.
