The Mediating Role of Operations Management Practices on the Relationship Between the Dimensions of Manufacturing Flexibility and Competitiveness
Keywords:Operations Management Practices, Flexibility of Manufacturing, Competitiveness
Purpose: The aim of this study is to examine knowing the real role and impact of manufacturing flexibility on competitiveness through operations management practices, which is to determine the role and impact of manufacturing flexibility on competitiveness directly in the General Company for the Battery Industry. On the other hand, identifying the indirect role of flexible manufacturing systems in enhancing competitiveness.
Theoretical framework: The main purpose of the theoretical framework is to identify all the dimensions and variables included in the current study, and thus form a deep scientific view of the study and its variables.
Design/methodology/approach: field coexistence, personal interviews, and classification of data and information obtained in the questionnaire were adopted as the main tool used in the research and for a sample of 74 observations. Structural equations modelling was used to analyze the data using the programs (SPSS24, AMOS23).
Findings: the research reached important results that represent The most prominent of these is the significant impact of manufacturing flexibility in enhancing the competitiveness of the battery manufacturing company, and this effect is reinforced by improving operations management practices by the company.
Research, Practical & Social implications: The research was conducted in this company because it requires scientific research capable of solving many of its problems as a result of increased competition in the market, as well as the continuation of this company in production despite the cessation of many other companies as a result of.
Value: It stems from a vital issue related to aimed at a better future in terms of Operations Management Practices, Flexibility of Manufacturing, Operations Management Practices, and Competitiveness, especially after the crisis that led to a significant decline in the level of performance of organizations.
