Linking Two Automotive Companies’ Organisational Structures to their Materials Flow Systems
Preprint, 2004

This almost completed article (preprint not yet published due to one of the two authors retirement) is a sort of summarization carried out until this specific point of time, of the author's combined methods. That is, to analyse production systems using collections of company data, interviews, questionnaire surveys, video-registration, etc. For example, this has been accomplished by means of constructions so-called schematic layouts. Such layouts illuminate the general function of the production system in question. Especially so, in comparison with e.g. the actual drawings of the building facilities.
