Enhanced Customer Acceptance Most consumers, unless they are production/operations management buffs, are not concerned with the details of the process used to make a product. Prospective car buyers, for example, generally want to learn about the engine, the size of the trunk, and how well the car rides; beyond the location of production, they probably do not care at all about the nature of the production control system (JIT versus MRP), whether the company uses empowered cross-functional teams, or which software was used in the factory's programmable logic controllers.
Pharmaceutical companies, however, must cope with more than just economic change. During the past fifteen years, they have seen the scientific and technical foundations of the industry begin to shift in the wake of advances in molecular biology, biochemistry, and medicinal sciences. The industry's economic structure is changing at the very same time that its scientific and technical foundations are shifting. As they seek to cope with the dual forces of economic and technical change, pharmaceutical companies are searching for and attempting to develop the organizational capabilities necessary in an environment that offers growing opportunities while demanding increasing cost discipline.
