  • About the Edition

    This book contains a collection of papers presented at the IFIP workshop on Benchmarking held in Trondheim, Norway, in June 1994. Most books available on the market tend to cover the basic theory of benchmarking. However, since this book is based on recent research papers it focuses more on presenting the latest trends within the field of benchmarking. The contributors range from experienced industrial benchmarkers to academic researchers within benchmarking, TQM and other related areas. The papers in the book are grouped into five Parts: management issues, modelling, performance measurements, tools and techniques, and applications. In addition, a set of shorter position papers is included. Finally, reports from three sessions of group work taking place at the workshop describe the major findings from the event. The group work sessions focus on three areas: how to implement benchmarking; modelling for benchmarking; and performance indicators. Lecturers and researchers in the areas of industrial engineering, quality management and business development, and middle and higher management in business or technology-oriented positions, will find this book invaluable.
