Tracking the trends in manufacturing technology management
Artikel i övriga tidskrifter, 2013
This paper explores the practical developments in manufacturing technology management over the last 22 years and links these to some of the subject trends of previous articles in the Journal of Manufacturing Technology Management. Themes and relevant articles have been identified from the Emerald advanced search facility and linked with developments in hard technologies, information technology and production organization. There are numerous examples of where trends in the real world of manufacturing technology management are reflected in changes to the orientation of JMTM articles, but there are still many articles following more well-worn paths of previous academic research. Over time, practitioners can find useful connections between published research and their own emerging areas of concern. The paper is based on original bibliographic research, supplement by extensive editorial and practical experience.
