Industrial companies condemned to hybrid manufacturing strategies. An explanatory research of the capabilities needed to put hybrid manufacturing strategies into action.

fulltext etc. no fulltext attached
abstract In contrary to the trade off assumption of traditional studies, researchers have confirmed that companies that have implemented a hybrid manufacturing strategy and therefore compete through multiple competitive priorities are successful.
Operations management literature states that capabilities directly influence a company's success and that to capture the firm's competitive behaviour one needs to analyze the way resources are used. The development as well as the management of capabilities is seen as a major task of a manufacturing strategy. Given the importance of the capabilities for a company's success, we pursue the goal to analyze the capabilities needed to compete simultaneously with multiple competitive priorities. In a first attempt to classify the capabilities underlying a hybrid manufacturing strategy five companies have been analyzed and compared. We articulate a set of propositions based on the comparative data. These observations yield a model of capabilities underlying a hybrid manufacturing strategy.
