Abstract

This paper is an attempt to systematize diversified strategic issues in global manufacturing. It focuses on technological resources and capabilities, and forward and backward supports of the manufacturing companies. With the increased competition in the marketplace, businesses are more function oriented and as such technological capability based strategy has got its prominence among the manufacturers. The study classified global manufacturing strategic issues into acquisitive, operative, innovative and supportive technological capabilities. It presents a comprehensive strategic model for global manufacturing showing interplay between technological resources and capabilities, and forward and backward supports. The model suggests manufacturers to consider resource and capability-based strategies in global manufacturing to be more competitive in their operation.
