Resumo

As organizações buscam, de forma cada vez mais incessante, maneiras atender seus clientes mais rápido que os concorrentes, sendo eficientes e eficazes, não elevando seus custos, e isso exige que elas façam mais com menos, buscando a adoção de técnicas que venham ao encontro de suas estratégias. Nesse contexto, este trabalho objetiva apresentar e analisar a aplicação prática do postponement em uma empresa têxtil. O trabalho utiliza o estudo de caso como abordagem metodológica, cujas evidências foram coletadas de diversas fontes. Os resultados mostram um entendimento da estratégia de manufatura usada pela empresa sem e com a adoção do postponement, bem como a visão dos impactos desta aplicação nos indicadores de desempenho da empresa onde ocorreu o estudo.

Abstract

Organizations seek increasing numbers of ways to serve their customers in a manner that is faster than that of their competitors while remaining efficient and effective, i.e., by not raising their costs; this constraint requires them to do more with less, seeking the implementation of techniques that can conform to their strategies. In this context, this paper presents the practical application of postponement in a textile company along with an analysis of the results. The work considers a case study, whose evidence was collected from various sources. The results provide an understanding of the manufacturing strategy adopted by the company without and with the adoption of postponement as well as an examination of the impact of application performance indicators of the company used in the study.

Keywords

Postponement. Decoupling point. Textile company. Performance indicators. Manufacturing strategy.
