    World class manufacturing (WCM) techniques can be used to return American manufacturing to the leadership position it formerly held. Clearly, if Americans continue to lose our wealth-generating manufacturing base to foreign competition, future generations will live with a degenerating standard of living. While Americans may all find employment in the growing economic sector referred to as Service America, these service jobs pay one-third less manufacturing jobs and generally do not create wealth but only trade the same used dollars.

    Economies Of Scale

    Conceptually, economies of scale permit larger firms to produce their products and provide their services at lower average costs per unit than smaller firms [Shepherd, 1979]. As firms produce more, they spread fixed input costs over a larger quantity of output, lowering per unit average costs. This ability to manufacture products and to provide services at a lower average cost should translate directly into higher profits, while also possibly creating significant barriers to entry into any industry in which economies of scale are present [Bain, 1954].
