This booklet is split into 4 sections: invited papers, ideas, platforms and strategies. The invited papers shape an in depth evaluation of the cutting-edge of creation administration. the subjects diversity from the eternal hunt for higher productiveness to the consequences of CIM architectures (particularly CIM-OSA) for construction administration. the opposite 3 sections of the booklet examine some of the difficulties affecting construction administration. one of many features of contemporary creation administration is the necessity for higher rules, structures and strategies for interorganizational creation administration. one other subject of the most important relevance is the need to grasp not just repetitive production but in addition exclusive product production. From the managerial standpoint, the forecast-based make-to-stock rules have confirmed inadequate, with industry forces not easy speedy and trustworthy deliveries of customer-oriented items. The ambitions of creation administration were re-evaluated for this reason

Thus, there is a need for more research. Section 3 argues that the knowledge to be developed and integrated can be approached from three theoretical frameworks (paradigms) for the design of production systems. These frameworks are dealing with: - the workflow through the production system (to be discussed in Section 4) - the structure of the primary resources (to be discussed in Section 5) - the organization of decision making (to be discussed in Section 6). Section 6 considers engineering functions such as product design and process design, as normal operational functions.

However, the ideas of Group Technology are mainly described for component manufacturing. In fact, the close connection of Group Technology to Period Batch Control, advocated by Burbidge, suggests that the majority of the parts produced are standard parts. However, many ideas from Group Technology are formulated in quite a general way. Therefore, the attempt to specify Group Technology for OKP seems worthwhile. This attempt will be sketched in the remainder of this paper. 45 When considering theories of production organization, such as JIT, GT, or sociotechnical design, there seem to be at least three frameworks (paradigms) which have to be synthesized (see Falster [9] for a methodological justification).

4. STRUCTURING THE FLOW OF WORK According to Burbidge [1], "Group Technology is an approach to the organisation of work in which organisational units are relatively independent groups, each responsible for the production of a given family of products. " Furthermore, "A group is a combination of a set of workers and a set of machines, and/or other facilities laid out in one reserved area, which is designated to complete a specified set of products. The workers in a group share a series of common output targets in terms of lists of products to be completed by a series of common due-dates.
