Moreover, linkages between productionsystems and manufacturing outputs are explored as well as the alignment betweencompany size and manufacturing capabilities. As such, this paper gives insight into howcompanies operate, with respect to operations strategy. Which strategic levers that arefocused on and which that are left behind, is furthermore considered.
