Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Most manufacturers run businesses to be able to fulfill short delivery times, frequent shipments, various products, and price reductions. For this reason, the performance of the organization must improve and identify by conducting a process of innovation and product development (IPD). Process performance improvement is used to create a competitiveness and long-term survival of the organization.
