Abstract:The globalization trend inevitably affects the organization of manufacturing by
enterprises. It offers opportunities to examine manufacturing from a global perspective and
consequently to produce where it is most appropriate. However, globalization has also led to an
increase in competitive pressures, as companies have to look wider for opportunities to increase
their competitive advantages. One source of competitive advantage arises from manufacturing
mobility, which is the timely transfer of technology among manufacturing sites. This paper
elaborates on the important determinants of manufacturing mobility, and provides a basis for
additional research in this area.
