rethinking the basic strategy for organizing and executing a series of manufacturing steps – represents a significant opportunity to enhance our future.
scalability can propel *qualitative*change because the magnitude of the decrease in cost or increase in de- ployment can be so large – effectively infinite compared to that previously possible. Continuous changes can lead to discrete differences

Three reasons process innovation is overlooked
Transiency. FMPI rarely leaves an enduring mark in history. Materials and products, on the other hand, can remain visible long after their production.Tacit Knowledge
Specialization: Today, when FMPI is considered, it usually occurs within a specific discipline or technical domain::Isn’t this what Arthur D. Little did across domains? Other consultants?::
Trivialization. FMPI is thought to be ‘just’ a rearrangement of steps,
Evidence from the Terracotta Army unearthed in Shaanxi Province, China suggests that these ideas emerged as early as the 2nd century BCE . The Venetians applied modular and standard parts to revolutionize ship building during the early 16th century ,
Eight Case Studies
FMPI often unlock scalability
During the innovation uptake phase, new bottlenecks are often recognized.
