dc.description.abstract The textile industry in South Africa is presently experiencing a severe recession. For a textile company to survive in the competitive market prevailing will require increased performance in the competitive variables. Puma Jersey is typically such a company and has realized the necessity of improving lead time and delivery performance to regain market share. To attain long term sustainability of performance requires the systemic compatibility of approaches used to reduce lead times and late deliveries. Systems thinking methodology was used to evaluate the appropriateness and compatibility of the approaches used. Systems thinking as also used to develop and practical implement the suggested approaches. Increased performance in lead time and delivery performance was attained by implementing appropriate performance measurements and then communicating these measurements with a technique called CEDAC. Synchronous manufacturing philosophy was implemented to reduce lead times. Systems dynamics was used as a complementary tool to assist the synchronous manufacturing principals. Systems dynamics was also used to determine the effectiveness of proposed systems to increase lead time and delivery performance. A considerable improvement in lead times and delivery performance was attained at Puma Jersey by implementing these four systemically compatible approaches. en_ZA
