Problem

Outdated production line methods


Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Other Names:
Inhuman assembly line production techniques
Inappropriate time and motion management philosophy
Taylorism
Fordism
Incidence:
There has been a continuing competitive decline of the centres of old Fordism -- North America and the UK -- and a matching success of Japan, Germany, and parts of Italy and Scandinavia, where a quite different productive model is in place.
Claim:
All the successful industrial economies are marked by their rejection of Taylorism and the negotiated consent of a core manual and technical labour force. Taylorism can no longer deliver the key elements of modern competition -- productivity, innovation and quality. The new competition requires a skilled and committed workforce, and this can only be achieved through a change in the social compromise between capital and labour.
