The aim of this study is to develop highly advanced manufacturing systems by integrating production system technologies of Japan and United Kingdom. Some Japanese companies have extended their business to United Kingdom with
Japanese production technique which is in the highest level in the world. Therefore penetration of the highly developed manufacturing system into other country and its effects on the country or its point at issue can be clarified by doing the research on the companies extended from Japan.
The research was carried out as a cooperative study between
Hiroshima University and Nottingham University in U.K., and the production system in the following companies or factories were studied by hearing or questionnaire :
a.Japanese companies that have factories in U.K.
b.U.K.factories extended from Japan.
c.The traditional U.K.companies.
d.The Japanese company that makes the products which are also made in traditional U.K.company
Following are the results obtained :
1.The companies examined does not recognize their production systems as CIM systems
2.Japanese companies have more affirmative attitude for automation than companies in U.K.
3.The negative attitude of the companies in U.K.comes from their cheaper labor cost.
4.In U.K., danger work or hard work in an unfavorable environment is considered to be the main object of an automation, while in Japan, decreasing of laborer is considered to be the main reason of an automation.
5.The companies examined forward computerization for each department, while they have negative view for integration.
6.The companies examined do not think that productivity is pushed on by automation.
