MARIN-GARCIA, Juan A; BONAVIA, Tomas y PARDO, Manuela. Production Systems, Internal Learning and Results of the Manufacturing Area of Ceramic Tile Manufacturers. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2009, vol.20, n.1, pp. 39-51. ISSN 0718-0764. doi: 10.4067/S0718-07642009000100006.
The objective of this research is to check the validity of a universal management model in the production strategy in the Spanish ceramic tile industry. The work focuses on infrastructure decisions, and seeks to highlight the effect of internal and external resources on the competitive advantage of the area of production of the industry. The data used were collected from 76 Spanish tile manufacturers companies and the results show that in this sector the resources that have been implanted have little association to the manufacturing priorities. In addition, it is shown that the competitive advantage is better explained by the internal learning variables than by the manufacturing practices.
