It is uncommon for a large multinational
corporation to reveal all of the details about how they achieved
competitiveness through a total reorganization of their manufacturing process.
But that is exactly what Philips has done in this unusually pragmatic book
that deals with every aspect of the logistic approach to business.
Covers the flow of goods from product
development and delivery of raw materials, through processing, to delivery of
the finished product. Emphasizes the importance of customer satisfaction as a
goal that will benefit delivery response, inventory availability, delivery
reliability, new product introductions, and flexibility.
