Governing The Factory

Much of management theory developed in response to the need to control factory processes. Assumptions on the hierarchies of unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled laborers and their supervisors and managers still linger on; however an example of a more contemporary approach to handle design applicable to manufacturing facilities can be found in Socio-Technical Systems (STS).

Famous quotes containing the words factory and/or governing:

    The factory was very fine;
    He wished it all the modern speed.
    Yet, after all, ‘twas not divine,
    That is to say, ‘twas not a church.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    We are apt to say that a foreign policy is successful only when the country, or at any rate the governing class, is united behind it. In reality, every line of policy is repudiated by a section, often by an influential section, of the country concerned. A foreign minister who waited until everyone agreed with him would have no foreign policy at all.
    —A.J.P. (Alan John Percivale)
