Języki publikacji
W części wprowadzającej do artykułu przedstawiono współczesne tendencje rozwoju procesów zarządzania procesami produkcji. W następnej części opracowania porównano podejście filozofii Lean Manufacturing i Agile Manufacturing (odchudzonej i agilnej albo inaczej zwinnej produkcji) w procesach zarządzania przedsiębiorstwem. Kolejna część artykułu analizuje trendy agilności w zakładach przemysłu motoryzacyjnego. W końcowej części artykułu przedstawiono wyniki własnych badań, związanych z tworzeniem wskaźników określających agilność produkcji na przykładzie dostawców dla przedsiębiorstw przemysłu motoryzacyjnego.

This article deals about the challenges of structural innovation in production systems. Changes in manufacturing conditions resulted to the development of multiple conceptual frameworks. The topic of agility in management is associated with the reaction of changing business strategy under the conditions of knowledge based economy. Introductory section of the paper presents the scope of agility, provides definitions of Agile Manufacturing by various authors, and focuses on providing an overview of Agile Manufacturing characteristics. In the next part of the article is compared approach to Lean Manufacturing and Agile Manufacturing. To be Agile, organizations must be Lean as a prerequisite. Lean production is also a different concept to Agile Manufacturing. Agile might be viewed as the next wave after Lean and most of the requirements for Lean are also requirements for Agile. Another part of the article analyses the agility trend in automotive industry. The potential for Agility is in all stages of the innovation cycle of automobile production. In the final part of the article is presented our research to the creation of metrics for measurement of agility automotive suppliers. In this section of the paper are summarized key elements of Agile automotive production system. Formulated is a set of modules and parameters and approach their application. The transformation of enterprise to agile structures requires application of specifics management's tools and techniques.
