Abstract

Holonic manufacturing systems were proposed to cope with the dynamic environment in manufacturing. However, the majority of the research on this topic is quite technical. This paper will review the concept of holonic manufacturing systems and discuss the human side of the system. An example of a holonic work organization will be described. A management framework for designing and implementing holonic work organizations will be proposed. Implications for practices and future research will be explored. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
