dc.description.abstract The realization that as a competitive factor, time plays a tremendously important role is slowly but surely dawning everywhere in the world. At the same time this is accompanied by the realization that the consumer ought to be first, instead of last, on the list of factors important to a business. This research project discusses a philosophy with certain techniques as well as a marketing strategy which could and should change the face of manufacturing and supply. The simplicity of these concepts and the basis they are founded on, namely the rational individual, make them appropriate and feasible. The ideal is a consumer who, through his order, sets a whole manufacturing/ supply process in motion. By eliminating wastage and by reacting solely to his request, he gets precisely what he wants, when he wants it and how he wants it. This research report explains how enormous strides have already been taken in this direction by (among other things) South Africa's textile and motor industries. en
