Abstract

El objetivo de este trabajo es examinar la relación entre la implantación de ciertas decisiones y políticas generadoras de capacidades de producción (automatización flexible de la planta, ingeniería de diseño y de fabricación, sistemas de gestión y control de calidad, y prácticas de recursos humanos centradas en el empowerment) y la importancia otorgada a determinadas prioridades competitivas en la estrategia de negocio. La base de datos utilizada está integrada por la información obtenida mediante una encuesta postal dirigida a las empresas del sector del metal, de más de 50 trabajadores e instaladas en España en el año 2001. Los resultados obtenidos de esta investigación sugieren que, a partir de la implantación de ciertas decisiones y políticas de producción, es posible obtener capacidades sobre las que asentar una ventaja competitiva. / The objective of this study is to examine the relationship between the implementation of decisions and policies that originate manufacturing capabilities (flexible plant automation, design and manufacturing engineering, quality management and control systems, empowerment) and the importance the company attaches to certain competitive priorities in its business strategy. Information for the data base was obtained by means of a postal survey to companies in the metal sector, with over 50 employees, established in Spain in 2001, the year of reference for the study. The results suggested that implementing certain production decisions and policies can enable a company to acquire capabilities that can act as a basis for a competitive advantage.
