dc.description.abstract Most manufacturing companies in the world have solid benchmarking standards to compete against competitors all over the world. The number of tools that they possess to become World-Class Manufacturing companies is numerous. With the philosophies of Deming, Juran and Crosby on Quality and the invention of the different practical tools from the Japanese, the results should have been positive but the practical results have been poor. The next question that arises is what is so difficult in emulating the successes of these companies? The theories are the same but the implementation is different for each company. Therefore, the solution seems to be able to understand the philosophies so that modifications brought about are still within the limits of the company's core values. The case study that is being explored in this thesis will be a container tank manufacturing, a subsidiary of a bigger company, in their attempt to implement these famous concepts. en_ZA
