    Abstract

    Each company has to invest in manufacturing management programs, methods and

    technologies in order to remain competitive. Previous studies, however, rarely took into

    account how the size and geographical focus of a business unit affect the relationship

    between manufacturing practices and performance. This paper analyzes the relationship

    between size, geographical focus, their effects on the use of manufacturing management

    programs, and their link to performance. Based on an international survey, we found

    significant characteristics among companies of different size and scope of operations.
