In addition to the practical report, a comprehensive literature survey is included, detailing all aspects of Group Technology, from methods of implementation to a full description of its benefits and effects on industry. Wide use is made of flow charts, photographs, drawings and tables to support the text and thus present as clear a picture as possible.
