Exogenous Factors and JIT adoption — Percentage of Production Units, Out of the Total Sample, which have Implemented, or are Implementing or Plan to Adopt JIT repetitive production (orders for large series and repeated orders for specific areas) and in electro-technical and mechanical types. The hypothetical frame of the influences of exogenous context factors on the adoption of JIT is not then confirmed, but the capacity of the adaptive approach to serve the most diverse conditions and operational realities is shown.

Therefore, the types represented by the mechanical, industrial equipment and electronic industries should be those involved with JIT. Finally, the existence of a holding company and its nationality should indicate a higher exposure to an innovative managerial culture. Therefore we expect production units which belong to international holding companies to be more interested in JIT. This research leaves out the role of the endogenous factors relating to management orientations and the degree of awareness[l].

A Review and Outlook Chris A. Voss Abstract In the Nineties companies were experiencing a number of different strategic and organizational models in running their manufacturing activities to overcome the limitations of the Fordist paradigm in the face of growing complexity and turbulence of the environment. Despite the differences, it was possible at that time to recognize few guiding principles that were common to the most advanced and effective models. In particular, the original paper summarized these principles in three: i) Multi-focusedness and strategic flexibility; ii) Process Integration; and iii) Process Ownership.
