The Regional Agglomeration Impact of Just-in-Time Input Linkages: Evidence from the Scottish Electronics Industry
There is no clear consensus as yet concerning the possible regional agglomeration impacts of Japanese just-in-time manufacturing techniques. This paper attempts to provide a theoretical structure to discussing such questions and then uses a logit model to analyze evidence from the Scottish electronics industry. The results provide support for the suggestion not only that the adoption of such techniques within the United Kingdom will encourage the shortening of input linkages but also that this phenomenon is not restricted purely to the case of the automotive industry.
