Abstract

Why produce? What should be produced? Where should it be produced? When should it be produced? How should it be produced?
For whom should it be produced? These are the strategic questions that any company needs to ask itself before it begins to manufacture something to sell. Answering these questions in a global economy is necessary again and again throughout the company’s lifetime when it wants to grow, maximize efficiency and, sometimes, to survive. Global firms have more choices for locating their activities than ever before. Answering these questions is tricky, and spontaneous solutions seldom hit the target. How can SMEs, in particular, be helped with their strategic production planning and decision-making? How can SME managers be helped to plan, profoundly, their production-related development issues and giant advances, especially when they are not familiar with these kinds of issues in their daily lives.
