Manufacturing Flexibility is mostly noticeable because the major solution for surviving in current markets characterised via brief lead occasions, tight product tolerances, strain on expenditures, common alterations of call for and non-stop evolution of goods. besides the fact that, the competitiveness of an organization could be negatively tormented by capital in depth investments in method flexibility. certainly construction contexts characterised through mid to excessive call for quantity of good pointed out households of goods in non-stop evolution ordinarily don't require the top point of flexibleness. Designing production platforms that optimally fulfill the creation standards represents a truly complicated challenge, when you consider that facets starting from production technique to method making plans, and from state of affairs research to functionality overview has to be thought of over the process lifecycle. The e-book addresses those interdependencies providing an built-in method of versatile creation approach layout. when you consider that conventional procedure architectures are usually not continuously the best approach to face new creation contexts a brand new production process structure named concentrated Flexibility production platforms – FFMSs can be brought. certainly the specific layout of flexibleness can result in hybrid platforms, i.e. computerized built-in structures including basic function and committed machines. this can be a key factor of FFMSs that are designed to accomplish an optimum stability among flexibility and productiveness at method level.

Interviews have been conducted to capture information from different sources by each company: Chief Executive Officers, Manager Directors, Chief Financial Officers, and Production Managers were the main interlocutors for the primary research. Interviews have been semi-structured on three sections. For system producers, three sections have been investigated: (a) the firm’s organization, strategy and business context, (b) approaches used to handle clients’ flexibility needs and (c) techniques to evaluate flexibility.
In textile the research covered wool manufacturing, whose process is composed of 2 Flexibility in Manufacturing 23 several phases. Weavers are vertically integrated, while system producers are focused on making machines dedicated to specific manufacturing steps. This industry has suffered over last years because of aggressive competition from Far East producers, downturns in European economies and the introduction of new materials. System producers face a decreasing local demand and try to extend their businesses to new markets, offering their products at prices that barely cover costs without being able to make customers perceive and pay the innovation contents they offer.
1 Methodology The empirical research has been conducted to reach three main objectives: find out (a) how firms manage and value manufacturing flexibility, (b) which manufacturing system solutions they tend to adopt and (c) how they react to the ‘‘focused flexibility’’ approach. The research has been conducted through ‘‘in person’’ interviews with a set of pre-selected companies. The sample is composed of twelve midsize Italian firms – that would be the more appropriate target for ‘‘Focused Flexibility’’ adoption – with a consolidated presence on the Italian and international markets (see Appendix 1 for the list of companies.
